Humanitarian Catastrophe in Gaza


Congress’s FY24 Budget Neglects Health and Humanitarian Needs

The Fiscal Year 2024 budget released by Congress today neglects the unprecedented need for health and humanitarian aid around the globe. The current budget includes modest increases for humanitarian accounts and cuts more than $500 million for global health primarily for HIV, tuberculosis, and malaria programs. 

Around the globe, the need for humanitarian assistance is at an all-time high, compounded by ongoing crises in Gaza, Haiti, Ukraine, and Sudan. The FY24 budget falls short of addressing current global challenges. Project HOPE calls on Congress to urgently pass the National Security Emergency supplemental including at least $9.2 billion for current humanitarian crises and present a stronger FY25 budget bill.  

Jed Meline, Project HOPE’s Director of Policy and Advocacy, said:
“Now is not the time for the United States to turn its back on communities in dire need of healthcare, food, clean water, and other urgently needed necessities. Instead, it is time for the United States to stand as a champion for people around the globe affected by poverty and conflict. While we applaud the $10 million for the new Global Health Workforce line in the Fiscal Year 2024 budget released by Congress today, the cuts to global health funding are a significant setback.”
