Email Templates

 
  1. We focus our advocacy on the U.S. Senators and Representatives on the subcommittees that fund foreign aid - the State and Foreign Operations subcommittees of Appropriations. If you are in one of the states or Congressional Districts listed below, we invite you to use these templates to get started on a personal email to your Member of Congress, sent c/o (in care of) the staffer listed. See the web pages for Tuberculosis and Comprehensive Primary Health Care for more information on what we’re asking and why.

  2. If you send one or both of these templates, please fill out this Survey to help us track which members have been contacted about our goals. Thanks!

Template 1

Subject line: Global Health aid: please lead on primary health care and reaching the poor

I’m writing to ask you to work with others to establish comprehensive primary health care as an essential element of US global health aid, and to ensure that a significant portion of all global health aid reaches the poorest people.  I support Fund for Global Health’s ask on this. Please let me know if you will consider this request.

Best regards,

(name, city)

Template 2

Subject line: Please lead on fighting global drug-susceptible TB 

I’m writing to ask you to put forward in the appropriations subcommittee for foreign aid a significant increase to $450 million for USAID’s Tuberculosis account.  The increase should go to fight drug-susceptible TB, the most common and easiest type to treat.  We also need accountability for the number of additional TB cases treated with US assistance. I’m supporting this Fund for Global Health ask - please let me know if you will consider this request.

Best regards,
