Trust for America's Health (TFAH) has released a new report, Funding Crisis for Public Health and Safety: A State-by-State Public Health Funding and Key Health Facts, 2017.  This report highlights the findings that “core funding for disease prevention and health promotion programs has declined by around $580 million federally and has remained flat in states since 2010 (adjusting for inflation)”. The report breaks down total CDC funding for each state per capita and describes other findings from the Funding Crisis brief.  The annual review reveals that cuts to federal funds have not been offset by increases to state and local funding. Recommendations for achieving a modern public health system are also provided.
