DescriptionWe have until Feb. 2 to influence the Adminsitration on the GPE Replenishment Conference. Let's ramp up cosponsorship of HRes466, SRes286, and engage communities in letter writing.We will pivot to appropriations, working to protect and expand funding for global health and education. We will take advantage of the world's renewed interest in TB to try to drive up bilateral TB funding in particular.We will continue our work on appropriations with a focus on TB as World TB Day approaches. We encourage groups to do letter writing around TB appropriations and build their groups.
