Posted In: US budget cuts 1 billion in STD prevention

The results of the recent budget negotiations are out: http://money.cnn.com/news/economy/storysupplement/finalprogramcuts.pdf?i... (pdf, use "Save as")

On page 6, one can find that "HIV AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention" is being reduced by 1 billion dollars, although it's not clear where exactly the cuts are being made. The total budget of "National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention" (it's part of CDC) is about 1 billion dollars, but I doubt that it was closed completely, so the cuts should be made somewhere else as well. Any ideas where and what that will mean for the HIV field?

Re: budget cuts

Looks like that was a mistake: "Congressional staffers working quickly to summarize the 400-plus page budget deal accidentally cut $1 billion in AIDS and STD prevention funding from a document posted on the House Appropriations Committee website Tuesday morning."

Re: budget cuts

it seems the cuts are not as bad as expected http://news.sciencemag.org/scienceinsider/2011/04/research-survives-in-2011-budget.html

"For the National Institutes of Health, the final agreement means a cut of roughly 1% from its current $31 billion budget..."

it will depend where the NIH decides to cut that percent off...
