    This was highlighted elsewhere but I thought it deserved its own thread.

    i.e.

    The CDC CFS budget is substantial: $5.4 million per year.

    ---

    The Prevention and Public Health Fund is solely used to fund the CDC's
    CFS program.

    An article about cuts to that is here:

    Cuts to Prevention and Public Health Fund Puts CDC Programs at Risk

    Reductions from the budget passed today and a $750-million shift of funds to the Children’s Health Insurance Program add pressure to public health initiatives, including immunizations and outbreak responses.

    The link says only 800k come from that program so i assume the other 4.6mil come from somewhere else? Either way i would post this on the cfs subreddit also to reach more people, i would do it myself but i don't know the details about this so i don't want to potentially spread false information

    edit: nevermind i can't read
