Members of Congress call for continued PEPFAR and Global Fund support

On March 28, Members of Congress sent a letter to Chairwoman Nita Lowey (D-NY), Ranking Member Kay Granger (R-TX) and Ranking Member Hal Rogers (R-KY) of the House Appropriations Committee and Subcommittee on State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs (SFOPS). The letter calls for continued support in fiscal year 2020 for two extraordinarily successful humanitarian assistance programs – the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria.

The letter was organized by Representative Barbara Lee (D-CA) and Representative Ann Wagner (R-MO), and states, “U.S. leadership through PEPFAR and other bilateral investments, along with multilateral investments in the Global Fund over time have been transformative in fighting the deadly HIV/AIDS epidemic that was devastating countries, and the results are astounding.”
