MENLO PARK, Calif., April 27 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- With attention to global health rising on the U.S. policy agenda in recent years, the Kaiser Family Foundation today launched a set of new resources providing U.S. policymakers, non-governmental organizations, journalists and others working in the global health arena with timely information, including daily news summaries, a policy tracker tool, and original research and analysis.

The new Kaiser Daily Global Health Policy Report synthesizes daily coverage from more than 200 news sources pertaining to U.S. policy discussions and debates on global health, including relevant news from around the world. The daily report will cover HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis (TB), malaria, nutrition, water and sanitation, polio, and maternal and child health, as well as funding, financing and health systems.

The Foundation also issued a new report, The U.S. Government's Global Health Policy Architecture: Structure, Programs and Funding, that provides the first comprehensive look at the U.S. government agencies and programs involved in the nation's global health response, including their funding and their approaches. Building on the report, the Kaiser Global Health Policy Tracker provides a single reference point to monitor the latest information on Congressional and administrative action on global health. Users of this online tool will be able to track the status of key legislation, policies and programs, government reports and other resources with links to supporting materials such as full bill texts and relevant Congressional committee information.

These free resources will anchor a new global health section of the Foundation's main Web site, kff.org, created to reflect the U.S. government's growing involvement in health in low- and middle-income countrie
