On February 27, over 50 advocates met with 30 key congressional offices for the launch of Global Health Council’s 2019 Global Health Briefing Book, A Guide to U.S. Investments in Global Health: Transforming Communities Worldwide. Following a day of Hill meetings, the global health expo, a showcase of interactive displays and items used in the field, was attended by over 100 advocates and congressional staff members. Congressman Ami Bera (D-CA) shared remarks regarding the importance of U.S. leadership in global health and development.
The briefing book, created in collaboration with the global health advocacy community, serves as an important resource documenting how global health work make a difference in people’s lives around the world. The briefs offer a set of recommendations to Congress on U.S. investments and programs that advance our collective goals.
