U.S. Must Provide Ample Funding For GAVI

“Considering its wealth, the U.S. spends relatively little on humanitarian aid that can make an enormous difference in the lives of millions of people – and in the perception of the U.S. around the world. Nothing this nation could do with $450 million would surpass the good accomplished with a vaccination pledge to GAVI,” according to a Detroit Free Press editorial, which calls for President Barack Obama to provide $450 million over three years for the GAVI Alliance (6/1).
