Lobbying for international health: The link between good ideas and funded programs: Bread for the world and the Agency for International Development

Abstract

Historically, the Agency for International Development (AID) health budget has been closely tied to overall development spending. A large increase in the international health appropriations in 1984 broke this pattern. Investigation shows that active grass roots organizing and congressional lobbying are the most likely responsible factors in the increase. Maintenance and expansion of this success will require increased recognition of and participation in these activities by individuals and organizations involved in international health.
