Chris Collins, president of Friends of the Global Fight Against AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, had this letter published in The New York Times this week. In his letter, Chris highlights the need to continue the progress against malaria rather than risk backsliding.

Thankfully, Congress has continued to demonstrate bipartisan leadership, with both the House and the Senate appropriations committees sustaining funding for the President’s Malaria Initiative, as well as the Global Fund, an agency based in Geneva financing AIDS, TB and malaria responses.

This strong American leadership will prevent millions of malaria infections, and can stop disease resurgence and save lives.
