House Resolution Would Recognize Importance Of Frontline Health Workers

ONE Campaign: One way to help fight preventable disease: Focus on frontline health workers
In a guest post, Scott Weathers, Global Health Corps policy fellow at IntraHealth International, discusses H.Res. 419, “Recognizing the Importance of Frontline Health Workers,” which is co-sponsored by Reps. Nita Lowey (D-N.Y.), Ander Crenshaw (R-Fla.), and “a growing list of co-sponsors.” Weathers notes, “This resolution would recognize the enormous impact of these health workers, whose work often puts their own well-being in great danger. It would also urge strong U.S. leadership and a coordinated U.S. government-wide action plan for its investments to help those same frontline health workers…” (10/7).
