This is an average of the three domain scores below.
The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) received a 66 (D) with transparency and a 75 (C) without transparency. HHS issued documents that negatively impacted sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) globally in both Maternal and Child Health and HIV and AIDS domains. The transparency grades were significantly lower across both domains due to the lack of transparency of the distribution of global health funding by HHS in 2018.
HHS received a 67 (D+) with transparency and a 71 (C-) without transparency for for HIV and AIDS based on the release of two relevant documents in 2018. The disbursed funds for HIV and AIDS programs through HHS were not publicly available, which contributed to this actor’s low transparency grade in this domain.
HHS received a 66 (D) with transparency and a 75 (C) without transparency for Maternal and Child Health. HHS was graded on the Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance (PLGHA) FAQ that included the “HHS Specific Information” section on page 17. The disbursed funds for maternal and child health programs through HHS were not publicly available, which contributed to this actor’s low transparency grade in this domain.
HHS does not receive a grade within the Family Planning domain because it does not work in international family planning.
