This report responds to a Congressional request that we provide information on expenditures of federal funds by several organizations and their affiliates--the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, the Population Council, the International Planned Parenthood Federation, The Alan Guttmacher Institute, Advocates for Youth, and the Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States (SIECUS)--all of which are involved in health-related activities. Specifically, we identified (1) fiscal year 2001 expenditures of federal funds that supported the domestic health-related activities of the organizations, the federal agencies that provided the funds, and the congressional committees with jurisdiction over legislation authorizing or appropriating the federal funds, and (2) fiscal year 2001 expenditures of federal funds that supported the international health-related activities of the organizations, the federal agencies that provided the funds, and the congressional committees with jurisdiction over legislation authorizing or appropriating the federal funds. This information updates our November 13, 2001, report that provided expenditure information for fiscal years 1999 and 2000.

For fiscal year 2001, the total amount of federal funds expended by the organizations for domestic and international health-related activities, such as family planning for individuals and health-related research, was approximately $225 million. The Planned Parenthood Federation of America and its affiliates, the Population Council, The Alan Guttmacher Institute, Advocates for Youth, and SIECUS reported spending approximately $170 million in federal funds to support their domestic health-related activities. The Department of Health and Human Services' (HHS) grants and programs were the major sources of the federal funds that the organizations spent for domestic health-related activities. Two committees in the Senate--Finance; and Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions--and two committees in the House of Representatives--Energy and Commerce, through its Subcommittee on Health; and Ways and Means--have jurisdiction over legislation authorizing the programs through which most of the federal funds were provided. In addition, the Senate and House committees on appropriations each have subcommittees that have jurisdiction over legislation appropriating funds for the federal programs. The Population Council, the International Planned Parenthood Federation's member family planning associations, The Alan Guttmacher Institute, and Advocates for Youth reported spending more than $55 million for international health-related activities. USAID and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) within HHS were the sources of the federal funds that the organizations spent. Two committees in the Senate--Foreign Relations; and Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions--and two committees in the House of Representatives--Energy and Commerce, through its Subcommittee on Health; and International Relations--have jurisdiction over legislation authorizing the programs through which the federal funds were provided. In addition, the Senate and House committees on appropriations, through their subcommittees on foreign operations; and labor, health and human services, and education, have jurisdiction over legislation appropriating funds for the federal programs.
