Devex: Bipartisan group in Congress urges U.S. to increase Global Fund contribution
“A bipartisan group of members of Congress sent a letter to the Trump administration Thursday asking for an increase in the U.S. contribution to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. The Global Fund announced earlier this month that it needs to raise $14 billion in its sixth replenishment, happening this year. The letter … was signed by 137 members of Congress and addressed to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
