The Fund for Global Health

Image_202103220902

We are a grassroots advocacy organization responsible for securing tens of millions of dollars in additional Congressional appropriations for lifesaving global health programs funded by the United States government. Currently, the Fund for Global Health and other TB advocates are asking the Biden Administration to launch a Global Tuberculosis Initiative, including a request to Congress for $1 billion in FY 22 for USAID’s TB account. We are looking for constituents of Adriano Espaillat (D-13, upper Manhattan and West Bronx) to become advocacy fellows. Our fellows are responsible for securing meetings with congressional staffers (largely on Zoom now) to hold virtual town halls regarding our TB and comprehensive primary healthcare in humanitarian situations advocacy items. This is an outstanding role for volunteers interested in global health and international development, as well as those interested in grassroots advocacy to Congressional representatives! We are a welcoming team that will generally require a twice a week, hour-long time commitment for meetings. Additionally, we offer fellows the opportunity to hear from leaders in the global health sphere once a month during our national chapter meetings! Despite the virtual nature of this fellowship, our fellows have tangible, real-world impact on the Congressional appropriations process that translates into lifesaving outcomes in the most vulnerable parts of the world.
