U.S. Must Continue Leadership To End Preventable Maternal, Child Deaths

The Hill: The U.S. child survival summit is a booster shot to a healthy future
Seth Berkley, CEO of the GAVI Alliance

“…While we have made great progress together [on ending preventable maternal, newborn and child death], there still is a long way to go. That is what is so important about this week’s U.S.-hosted event, Acting on the Call: Ending Preventable Child and Maternal Deaths, under leadership of USAID Administrator Rajiv Shah and the governments of India and Ethiopia. … Just like children need [vaccine] boosters to ensure lasting immunity, American leadership emerging from Acting on the Call is our booster shot to ensure that all mothers and children have a fair start at a healthy life and contribute to their countries’ healthy future” (6/23).
