It’s hard to ignore that this is an election year. Everyone is thinking about what will happen in the next Congress based on what happens during the election. Let’s not forget that this current Congress still has three months of work to do. There are critical things on the agenda that need to be accomplished by this Congress. One of those issues is global maternal and child survival. There is a bill that is on the table which could save the lives of 5.6 million children globally.
The Reach Every Mother and Child Act ensures that women and children who are vulnerable of dying from preventable causes have access to available resources.
