Representative Harold Rogers (R-KY, 5th) introduced the “Full-Year Continuing Appropriations Act, 2011” (H.R. 1) authorizing appropriations for the remaining seven months of FY 2011 (the first 5 months of FY 2011 were funded under FY 2010 level). The proposed reductions in global health funding (when compared to FY 2010 totals) included in this appropriations bill are provided in the table below.

*In FY 2010, total funding for FP/RH from GHCS and other accounts, including a contribution to the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), was enacted at $648.5 million. The FP/RH funding level proposed in H.R. 1 does not delineate funding by account. Therefore, it is uncertain what portion of this funding reduction is included in the reduction proposed for USAID-GHCS. H.R. 1 would also reinstate the Global Gag Rule.
