In the last 48 hours, the House and Senate have taken major steps to shape the budget that affects U.S. foreign affairs spending – and their positions couldn’t be farther apart when it comes investing in global women’s health.

Meanwhile, the Senate would expand support for women around the world and amend the total ban on abortion in the Peace Corps.
