    It isn't "the AP's health". It's "the heath and sciences reporting" bureau of the AP.

The key phrase is "health and science" rather than "AP's health". From the context, the Associated Press produces content related to health and science, which the article is calling "health and science reporting." So, from the context, the author is disclosing a possible conflict of interest: Someone receives money from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute in the same area as the article (it's in the area of health-and-science reporting).
