This statement commends the U.S. House of Representatives’ passage of H.R. 2740, the Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, Defense, State, Foreign Operations, and Energy and Water Development Appropriations Act, 2020. The statement says, “The approved legislation provides $1.56 billion for the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, $210 million above the Fiscal Year (FY) 2019 enacted level. Critically, the bill also requires that the full $1.56 billion be provided to the Global Fund as the first installment of the Global Fund’s Sixth Replenishment. The legislation maintains the FY 2019 enacted funding levels for the U.S. President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI), the U.S. government’s leading bilateral malaria program, at $755 million…” (6/20).
