The United States allocates millions of dollars each year to health. However, Congress needs to know how best to use this money to most efficiently decrease the burden of disease around the world. The Global Health Council and its members work to inform Congress not only about where the money is needed most, but also how the U.S. investment in global health will have the greatest “bang for the buck."
Your donation will advance advocacy efforts for change in global health by contributing to informational events (briefings) and short publications (policy briefs) for Congress. Because Congress is often inundated with information, they need digestible and usable information that can be used to better inform U.S. policy. The Council’s events and publications do just that. The briefings educate people in Washington by having preeminent researchers, providers and leaders in global health inform policy-makers about the impact of U.S. investment in the field. They are also opportunities for people who have benefited from this investment describe how their lives have been changed. The policy briefs are short, well-researched documents that can be used by members of Congress as references on global health issues. Your gift will not only help shape this country’s legacy, but also improve the health for millions of people around the world.
