Mission Statement

The Fund for Global Health is a non-partisan, non-profit aid and advocacy organization, the activities of which include working with Congress on policy improvements and increased funding for selected U.S. global health and humanitarian aid programs. For more information, go to: www.fundforglobalhealth.org.

Description

We are a national grassroots advocacy organization that has worked to secure tens of millions of dollars in additional Congressional appropriations for lifesaving global health programs funded by the U.S. 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 FY22 for USAID’s TB account.

We are seeking constituents of U.S. Senator Chris Van Hollen (D) of Maryland, a member of the subcommittee that funds foreign aid, to join our work. Our Advocacy Fellows secure meetings with Congressional staff and produce virtual town hall events to communicate with the Senator directly.

This is an outstanding role for volunteers interested in global health, international development, and grassroots advocacy! We are a welcoming team meeting virtually twice a week. Fellows also hear from leaders in global health monthly during our national conference call. 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 our world.
