ABSTRACT

HIV/AIDS International Programs: Appropriations, FY2003-FY2006 [Updated January 3, 2006]   [open pdf - 0B]

"FY2006 Appropriations for Foreign Operations (P.L. 109-102), Labor/HHS/ Education (H.Rept. 109-300), Defense, and Agriculture (P .L. 109-97) provide more than $3.4 billion for international HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis (TB), and malaria initiatives. The largest portion of the funds is provided through P.L. 109-102, which directs more than $2.8 billion to fighting the three diseases. The $550 million directed to the Global Fund through FY2006 appropriations reflects the largest U.S. contribution to date, with $450 million in Foreign Operations Appropriations and an additional $100 million in Labor/HHS/Education Appropriations. Final conference funding levels for AIDS, TB, and malaria were $286 million more than the Administration requested, $230 million more than the House requested, and nearly $121 million less than the Senate proposed."
