U.S. Congress passes FY 2018 budget which includes $1.35 billion for the Global Fund

3 Apr 2018
Funding for other global health programs remains intact

On 22 March, the U.S. Congress approved a budget for Fiscal Year (FY) 2018, which includes a $1.35 billion contribution for the Global Fund, equal to what the U.S. contributed in FY 2017. In so doing, Congress ignored a proposed budget from President Donald Trump which would have resulted in $225 million less funding for the Global Fund.

In the U.S., FY 2018 runs from 1 October 2017 to 30 September 2018.
