GHC member Friends of the Global Fight published a press release voicing deep concern about proposed cuts to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria. According to Friends’ analysis of President Trump’s proposed FY19 budget released on February 12th, the “budget request, which proposes cutting $425 million from the U.S. commitment to the Global Fund, would risk resurgence of disease, potentially squandering major progress that the U.S. has led in the fight against AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria.” They also released a new infographic (above), detailing the serious impact that the proposed $425 million (31 percent) cut to the Global Fund would have on its lifesaving work. Additionally, watch Friends’ video calling on Congress to support the Global Fund, and support them by spreading the word with the aid of their social media toolkit.
