Time Commitment

A few hours per week


Fund for Global Health works on advocacy for cost-effective global health solutions with the greatest potential to prevent death and disability. We advocate with the U.S. Congress and the World Bank, the biggest funders of development assistance, working together with like-minded organizations.  

Every day, 16,000 children die of mostly preventable causes. 1.7 million people a year die of tuberculosis, now the biggest infectious disease killer. These and other global health problems are being addressed by U.S. foreign assistance, but more needs to be done.  This is an excellent opportunity to address major global health challenges and learn effective advocacy skills.
