Global Health Funding
CDC manages approximately $2.1 billion in financial and resource investments for global health. In addition to Congressional Appropriations, CDC receives approximately $12 million in global funding through foundations and other donors including the Bloomberg Family Foundation, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and the CDC Foundation.
To keep pace with the growth of its global programs, CDC is closely managing its resources overseas. CDC is ensuring that every dollar spent overseas achieves maximum public health impact. CDC has:

- Created a new Associate Director for Program Management position whose position includes management of on-site reviews
- Created a Global Management Taskforce to give high-level oversight
- Provided more resources to support overseas grants and contracts work
- Mandated that all CDC overseas staff receive training in fiscal and procurement management
- Started planning for stricter reviews of grant recipients
