January 2008 Ask your senators and representative to sign letters to World Bank President Robert Zoellick demanding that the World Bank learn from Professor Yunus and increase funding for microfinance for the poorest.

December 2007 Ask your senators to sign the Bennett-Durbin-Enzi Letter to World Bank President Zoellick asking him to direct at least half of the Bank’s microfinance funding to the very poor.

November 2007 Write a letter to your representative and/or senators asking them to cosponsor and actively support the U.S Commitment to Global Child Survival Act, which would put the United States at the forefront of global efforts to reduce child deaths.

October 2007 Ask your representatives and senators to cosponsor the Stop TB Now Act and urge leadership to bring it to a vote on the floor for a vote. The Stop TB Now Act calls for the U.S. to commit the funds and put in place the policies necessary to implement the World Health Organization’s Global Plan to Stop TB and achieve the Millennium Development Goal (MDG) of halving TB deaths and disease by 2015.

September 2007 Ask your representative and senators to meet with World Bank president Zoellick on microcredit and other pro-poor investments, urge Mr. Zoellick to invest more in microcredit, and question why the Bank is not doing more on proven health and education investments that will directly help the very poor

July 2007 Write a letter to the editor urging the World Bank to invest in microcredit for the very poor. Despite microcredit’s proven success, the World Bank is spending little if any funding on microcredit for the very poor (those who live on less than $1 a day). Through letters to the editors of our local papers and calls to our U.S. Representatives to sign a letter to him, we will be urging incoming World Bank President Robert Zoellick to seize the opportunity to make this happen.

June 2007 Write to your representative or senators and urge them to ask the House or Senate Foreign Ops Subcommittee Chair and ranking member to provide $1 billion for the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria within their 2008 foreign aid spending bill. The Global Fund is a critical and central component of mechanisms necessary to fulfill the world’s promise to reverse these epidemics by 2015. To achieve these goals, the Global Fund estimates that it will need an estimated $6-8 billion annually by 2010.

May 2007 Ask Congress to Oppose IMF Restrictions on Poor Countries’ Health and Education Spending.

Many of the world’s poorest countries scaled up funding for AIDS and other critical health and education efforts However, IMF-imposed spending limits translate into budget and hiring ceilings that limit education and health spending, leaving poor countries unable to use additional foreign aid to help improve the health and education of their people and achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

April 2007 Write a Letter to Your Representative Urging More and Better Funding for Global Education.

In April, RESULTS joins global education activists across the U.S. and around the world as part of the Global Campaign for Education’s Week of Action April 23–29. Leveraging this campaign, we’re writing letters to our members of Congress requesting that they support the chair and ranking member of Foreign Ops to increase funding for global basic education and target this funding on the MDG goal of universal access to education for all children by 2015.

March 2007 Write a letter to the editor urging U.S. leaders to do more to fight TB.

World TB Day is March 24, an opportunity to spotlight tuberculosis, which takes the lives of nearly two million people each year, mostly in the developing world. The theme of World TB Day 2007 is “TB Anywhere is TB Everywhere,” emphasizing that TB is a global emergency demanding the world’s urgent action. Recent deadly outbreaks of extremely drug-resistant TB (XDR-TB) pose an unprecedented worldwide health risk and threaten to roll back our progress in the fight against TB and HIV/AIDS.

February 2007 House appropriators are submitting their priorities for the 2008 foreign aid spending bill early this year — February 20. Ask your member of Congress to support key health, education, and economic opportunity priorities for 2008. House Appropriations Committee members are asked to include RESULTS’ priorities in their formal “Wish List.”

January 2007 In the new year, Congress will take up supplemental funding requests for the war in Iraq and other pressing security concerns. We must urge that they include funding for global health, in particular increased TB funding to respond to the outbreaks of XDR-TB and to control TB in Africa and globally.
