Caryl M. Stern, president and CEO of the U.S. Fund for UNICEF

“The current measles outbreak in the U.S. raises serious concerns — not just from a domestic public health standpoint, but from a global one as well. … Every year, globally, 1.5 million children still die because they were not immunized.
