The resources that could save nearly 11 million children’s lives are not high-cost, not high-tech, and not uncommon. So what are they? Tragically out of reach.
Saving lives is as simple as a vaccine, a mosquito net, or an antibiotic. Saving lives is as simple as a standard doctor’s appointment and access to run-of-the-mill medicine. Saving lives is as simple as Congress continuing to support global development programs that keep young children alive.
The truth is, we have the power to end preventable child deaths within a generation–but we need to start now. When 21 children under the age of five die each minute, every second matters.
As the U.S. government’s next fiscal year approaches, so will a new budget. Congress has a wonderful history of supporting global child survival programs. Let’s keep it that way. Don’t let Congress call it quits on the world’s children.
