The National Institutes of Health would absorb an enormous $5.8 billion cut under President Trump’s first budget proposal—equal to about 19% of its current $30.3 billion discretionary budget. The plan “includes a major reorganization” of NIH’s 27 institutes and centers and would eliminate the Fogarty International Center, a $69.1 million program dedicated to building partnerships between health research institutions in the United States and abroad.
