Updated March 26: It’s time for a March Madness Recap! This month has been busy with action taking to get members of Congress to sign on to “Dear Colleague” letters in support of RESULTS global health appropriations asks. Congresswoman Barbara Lee (D-CA) led a letter in support of full funding for the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB, and Malaria, and we had a bi-partisan letter from Rep. Young (R-AL) and Rep. Engel (D-NJ) requesting support for bilateral TB-funding. Another bi-partisan letter supported robust funding for the Maternal and Child Health account, including support for GAVI was circulated by Representatives Betty McCollum (D-MN), Dave Reichert (R-WA), Lois Capps (D-CA) and Aaron Schock (R-IL). 

Great work getting signers!  Check below to see if your member signed on to one or more of the appropriations letters.
