Published annually by InterAction, Choose to Invest is an online educational resource designed to help members of Congress, congressional staff, and others working
on appropriations questions related to key U.S. global development and humanitarian programs. Each budget account profile includes:
- A specific funding recommendation built on decades of field experience by InterAction members;
- A list of key program facts and a chart of previous funding levels; and
- A story illustrating the impact of the program in helping empower vulnerable communities across the globe.
As Congress moves into budget and appropriations season for FY2017, we hope Choose to Invest will continue to be a valuable, educational tool for members of Congress, their staff and other U.S. policymakers working to improve the lives of those living in extreme poverty.
Choose to Invest includes FY2017 Funding Recommendation and Justification for NTDs highlighting an impact story submitted by ENVISION implementer IMA World Health, Haiti’s Journey to Elimination of Lymphatic Filariasis: It’s Almost Over.
