About

The mission of the Fund for Global Health is to provide the maximum possible health benefit to vulnerable people in developing countries. One of the best ways to accomplish this is by advocating for increased U.S. funding for effective global health programs.

A small number of U.S. Representatives and Senators on the State and Foreign Operations Subcommittees of Appropriations decide on funding for U.S. global health programs. If you are in a congressional district or state represented by one of these subcommittee members, you have a unique and important opportunity to make a difference to U.S. leadership and funding for global health. We are offering constituents of these Representatives and Senators an opportunity to engage in effective citizen lobbying to that end. Interns and volunteers make a minimum 4-month commitment to a program of weekly communication and action, trained and supported by one of our coordinators. All activities can be conducted remotely.

To see which Representatives and Senators are on these subcommittees, cut and paste the following into your browser:
