*Includes an across-the-board 0.2% rescission included in the appropriations bill.
**In FY 2010, total bilateral funding for FP/RH was enacted at $648.5 million. The FP/RH funding level proposed in H.R. 1473 does not delineate funding by account. Therefore, it is uncertain what portion of this funding is included as part of the over USAID-GHCS account funding total. H.R. 1473 does not reinstate the Global Gag Rule.
***The U.S. contribution to UNFPA is included as part of the overall FP/RH funding amount.
