President Trump’s proposed 2021 budget would reduce HHS funding by more than 9%, including large cuts to the NIH and CDC budgets. Reductions to some programs could impact the country’s ability to prevent and respond to public health threats and weaken support for global efforts to fight HIV/AIDS, observers warned.
The proposed budget slashes NIH funding by 7% and CDC funding by 9%, said Emily Conron, a U.S. policy and advocacy officer at Global Health Technologies Coalition. The proposed cuts were announced even as the CDC “mounted a rapid response” to the coronavirus outbreak, Conron said.
