Although foreign-aid spending represents about 1 percent of the federal budget, its impact on global health is measured in millions of lives saved. And while foreign-aid cuts would have a negligible impact on our nation’s balance sheet, the impact on developing nations fighting disease and poverty will be measured in tens of thousands of lives lost.

According to the American Foundation for AIDS Research, for every 5 percent reduction in global-health funding, 182,000 people with HIV/AIDS will lose access to lifesaving treatment.
