But today I’m encouraged, because this can change. Right now, Congress is deciding how much funding will go towards sustaining critical global health programs, including childhood vaccines. The numbers they come up with will have a big impact on how many children can be reached.
It’s important that your Representatives in Congress hear from YOU!
Global organizations like the United Nations, U.S. government agencies like the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and USAID, and other partners like the GAVI Alliance are working tirelessly to ensure that children in the hardest to reach areas have access to life-saving vaccines. But, support for their efforts starts with you. Let your Member of Congress know today that global childhood vaccines are important to you and that funding for these organizations must be sustained.
