U.S. Investments In Global Health Save Lives, Maintain National Security

In an opinion piece published in the latest edition of PSI’s Impact magazine, Reps. Adam Smith (D-Wash.) and Ander Crenshaw (R-Fla.) write, “As lawmakers and co-chairs of the Congressional Caucus for Effective Foreign Assistance, we have a fiscal responsibility to ensure that American dollars are being spent wisely and effectively. In that spirit, we believe in concentrating on what we do well and where we can have the greatest impact. Such opportunities are abundant in the field of global health. … Congress can continue to help improve the lives of women, newborns and children in developing countries by maintaining our investments in cost-effective, high-impact solutions that have the power to end preventable deaths. Targeted investments in innovative programs save lives, create new allies and markets, and improve our national security…” (4/8).
