Public Health Woefully Underfunded in Administration's Proposed Budget
Date:2/4/2008

esources and Services Administration (HRSA). Bush proposes to eliminate funding for training doctors at children's hospitals and proposes to decrease funding for training nurses and other public health professionals by $240 million from fiscal year 2008 levels. Further hurting the nation's public health sector, the budget also calls for a $112 million decrease in HRSA funding for rural health programs, reducing funding to only $17 million.

Additionally, the proposed budget would cut federal Medicaid expenditures by $18.2 billion over five years and Medicare would be reduced by $556 billion over 10 years. These reductions would jeopardize the health of millions of lower-income and older Americans who rely on these programs to provide access to health care services.

While APHA opposes the many proposed budget cuts that will harm the health of our nation, the Association does applaud the administration's inclusion of a modest $129.7 million increase for the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) aimed at enhancing the government's efforts to ensure food and drug safety in the United States.

In response to the evolving public health challenges of the 21st century, our nation needs a federal budget that enables the public health sector to be able to respond to both the urgent public health threats that will emerge and the urgent realities we are facing today. APHA calls on Congress to take the health needs of our nation into consideration and to support the measures necessary to guarantee that all Americans have access to preventative health services that will improve the quality of their lives.

APHA is the oldest and most diverse organization of public health professionals in the world and has been working to improve public health since 1872. The Association aims to protect all Americans, their families and their communities from preventable, serious health threats and strives to assure community-based health promotion and disease prevent
