Statement of Changes in Net Position: Cumulative Overview

Bureau of the Comptroller and Global Financial Services
December 16, 2013


The Statement of Changes in Net Position identifies all financing sources available to, or used by, the Department to support its net cost of operations and the net change in its financial position. The sum of these components, Cumulative Results of Operations and Unexpended Appropriations, equals the Net Position at year-end. The Department's net position at the end of FY 2013 was $58.4 billion, a $4.2 billion (8 percent) increase from the prior fiscal year. This change resulted from a $2.9 billion increase in Unexpended Appropriations and a $1.3 billion increase in Cumulative Results of Operations.

Tenth Anniversary of PEPFAR Marked at Department of State

On June 18, 2013, in a tribute to the success of the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) program, Secretary Kerry announced that the one-millionth baby would be born HIV-free due to PEPFAR-supported prevention of mother-to-child transmission programs. At an event marking PEPFAR's tenth anniversary, the Secretary stated that there are 13 countries at the programmatic "tipping point" in their AIDS epidemic - the point where the annual increase in adults on treatment is greater than the number of annual new adult infections. To further mark the program's anniversary, Ambassador Eric Goosby, U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator, participated in a live Google+ Hangout on PEPFAR and the battle against HIV from the U.S. Department of State in Washington, D.C. on June 20, 2013.

Global health programs such as PEPFAR support the Department's strategic goal four: provide humanitarian assistance and support disaster mitigation. The Department's investments in global health protect Americans at home and abroad, strengthen fragile or failing states, promote social and economic progress, and support the rise of capable partners. These global health efforts are a signature of American leadership.

Over the past decade, new HIV infections have declined nearly 19 percent globally, and AIDS-related mortality has decreased by 26 percent since its peak in 2005. In sub-Saharan Africa, progress has been even more marked, with new infections down by 33 percent over the past decade, and AIDS-related mortality declining by 32 percent since its peak in 2005.
