Senate Appropriations Committee introduces Continuing Resolution for the remainder of FY 2011; includes overall increase in global health funding

The Senate Committee on Appropriations introduced a Continuing Resolution (CR) that would authorize appropriations for the remaining seven months of FY 2011 (the first 5 months of FY 2011 were funded under FY 2010 levels). This legislation would replace the full-year appropriations bill (H.R. 1) that was recently passed by the House on February 19, 2011. Unlike H.R. 1, which proposes to cut global health funding, the Senate CR proposes an overall increase in global health funding (see table below). Additionally, the summary of the CR provided by the Senate Committee on Appropriations categorizes State and Foreign Operations funding as part of National Security.

*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.
