Media Action: Global Fund--Reasons to Celebrate

On October 9 a bipartisan group from Congress stood on stage, addressing a room full of world leaders focused on the fight against AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria. The message from Congress? Exactly what what we’ve been pushing for all year. Congressional leaders committed to contribute $4.68 billion to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria over the next three years – a full third of the $14 billion it will take for this partnership to save 16 million lives.

Then a long line of other leaders stood on the same stage making pledges. The total ticked up to a record $13.92 billion, with a personal promise from the president of France to get to $14 billion by December!

With good news hard to come by these days, this is worth celebrating in the media. Write a letter to the editor to let your community know that Republicans and Democrats are working together to create positive change in the world.
