Congress Should Pass Reach Act To Help Reduce Preventable Child, Maternal Deaths Worldwide

NJ.com: Congress must act to end preventable child and maternal deaths
Phyllis AlRoy, group leader for RESULTS in New Jersey

“…[The Reach Every Mother and Child Act of 2015 (S.1911 or Reach Act)] will hold USAID accountable to its promises into the future and ensure that ending preventable maternal and child deaths remains a U.S. priority after the Obama administration is gone. This legislation will maximize our investments, with returns measured in lives saved and healthy prosperous communities. If they work quickly to pass this bill, Congress can make sure that every single child in the world has a chance to not only survive, but thrive…” (10/1).
