Cents and Sensibility: U.S. International Family Planning Assistance from 1965 to the Present

Despite representing a miniscule fraction of overall discretionary spending by the federal government—six one-hundredths of one percent (0.06%) in FY 2017—U.S. international FP/RH assistance has generated disproportionate political opposition from anti-contraception activists both inside and outside the U.S. government. At the same time, the program has delivered innumerable health, social, and economic benefits to women around the world.

Global Health Council (GHC) member PAI has an interactive graph to view the historical trends in U.S. government financial support for international family planning and reproductive health (FP/RH) programs. Interact with the tool.

Accelerating US Progress in Combating Malaria Worldwide: Recommendations for Maximizing Investments Toward a World Free From Malaria

This brief lays out an investment case for what is needed, challenging US leadership to match a bold vision for malaria control and elimination with full funding for malaria programs, intensified support for R&D, and continued efforts to leverage US influence globally to achieve this vision.
