U.S. Investment In Global Immunizations Can Protect Americans, Children Worldwide

Los Angeles Times: The measles outbreaks that matter the most aren’t happening here
Andrea Gay, executive director of children’s health at the United Nations Foundation and a member of the Measles & Rubella Initiative

“…There are still millions of children around the world who don’t have access to the measles vaccine. … Simply put, we need more resources for the global effort. … One way is for Congress to devote resources to this goal as it considers the U.S. commitment to the Global Health Security Agenda … Measles anywhere is measles everywhere, including the United States. An investment in global immunization can help prevent future importations of the virus and — even more significant — can help ensure that no child anywhere dies of a preventable disease like measles” (2/10).
