AIDS, TB, malaria are at “tipping point”; more U.S. investment needed in Global Fund and elsewhere, report says
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.
Le budget proposé par le président Trump pour l’exercice 2019 comprend 425 millions de dollars de coupes du financement destiné au Fonds mondial
Le président américain Donald Trump a envoyé au Congrès une proposition de budget pour l’exercice 2019 qui suppose une réduction d’environ 425 millions de dollars de financement destiné au Fonds mondial. Aux États-Unis, l’exercice 2019 commence le 1er octobre 2018. Les États-Unis sont de loin le plus gros donateur du Fonds mondial, contribuant environ 1,35 milliard de dollars par an.
U.S. President Donald Trump has sent the U.S. Congress a proposed budget for the 2019 fiscal year that includes a cut of about $425 million in funding for the Global Fund. The 2019 fiscal year starts on 1 October 2018. The U.S. is by far the largest contributor to the Global Fund, providing about $1.35 billion a year.
In November of last year Republican Donald Trump was elected as the next President of the United States. The upset victory was a surprise, given that most major polls showed his opponent on the left, Democrat Hillary Clinton, with a comfortable lead going into Election Day. The consensus seemed to be that a Hillary Clinton presidency would mean the continuation of many of the Obama administration’s policies.
