The Mexico City Policy and Implications for Global Health
On his first business day in office, President Trump reinstated and expanded the Mexico City Policy, which denies U.S. funding to any foreign NGOs that perform, counsel, or refer about abortion with non-U.S. funds. In past Republican administrations, this policy applied only to U.S. funding for international family planning, but President Trump has expanded it to apply to all global health funding. We asked Jen Kates, Vice President and Director of Global Health & HIV Policy at the Kaiser Family Foundation, to update us on the new policy and the potential implications for global health programs.
