Provide funding for global health efforts

The House of Representatives failed to include any real international response to coronavirus in its new bill. This is a gaping hole.

In dozens of countries, many kids are already missing out on lifesaving vaccines, its getting harder to access treatment for diseases like tuberculosis and HIV/AIDS, and food insecurity and starvation are rising fast.

Global challenges aren’t solved in isolation; they’re solved in partnership. Whether it’s COVID-19 or other ongoing global health emergencies, we need a strong response from Congress here and around the world. I’m counting on our senators to make sure our country does its part in a global response to this global pandemic.
