Holding Leaders Accountable to Address Global Health
U.S. President Obama has pledged to the Congress to approve the Fiscal Year 2010 Budget request of $8.6 billion and $63 billion over six years to shape a new, comprehensive global health strategy. As the PEPFAR (the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief) constitutes more than 70 percent of U.S.'s global health funding, United States' progressive commitment is significant to address global health. However, what are leaders in your country doing? What are you doing to ensure that global health goals are being met? Act today; make a commitment to follow up with your head of state to asking them to take responsibility on global health issues! Make them keep their promises!
