Your voice matters. And our collective voice has the power to make a massive impact. So much is happening right now on a policy level that has the potential to change the course of health care, both in America and around the world.
Protect and Advance Anti-Poverty Funding Priorities
Drawing on strong bipartisan support in Congress for effective health, nutrition, and education programs, RESULTS will work throughout the budget and appropriations process to protect and increase this funding. Funding priorities include fulfilling the U.S. pledge to the Global Fund and other resources to fight TB, funding to end preventable child deaths and stunting, and support for the Global Partnership for Education.
Pass the Reach Every Mother and Child Act
In 2016, RESULTS made tremendous progress in building support for the Reach Every Mother and Child Act, with a majority of the House and nearly one-third of the Senate co-sponsoring the bill. RESULTS will work to support the reintroduction and passage of the Reach Act in 2017. The legislation would work towards ending preventable maternal and child deaths and codify a number of reforms to increase the impact of the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID).
Fund the Global Partnership for Education
The Global Partnership for Education (GPE) is the only multilateral fund dedicated solely to children’s education, bringing together a diverse set of partners to finance quality education plans in poor and conflict-affected countries. GPE will host a replenishment conference in late 2017 or early 2018, and RESULTS will work to secure an ambitious, multi-year funding pledge from the U.S.
