President Obama Should Honor Bipartisan Congressional Request To Fund Gavi
Houston Chronicle: Save lives
“…Gavi, [the Vaccine Alliance,] has a goal of creating equal access to vaccines for children living in the world’s poorest countries. … The United States … is one of Gavi’s largest donors. Reps. Michael McCaul, R-Austin, and Lloyd Doggett, D-Austin, among others, have co-sponsored a draft congressional resolution and a letter to President Obama in support of funding [Gavi] again. President Obama should honor the bipartisan request by making a robust pledge. The Ebola outbreak is a reminder that we must seize every opportunity to stay ahead of diseases. Providing millions of children with access to life-saving vaccines is the right thing to do” (12/1).
