Petition to President Obama to end preventable child deaths

 

Dear Mr. President,

 

I am asking you to act on the commitment the United States made last year to help wipe out preventable deaths of children under the age of five within a generation.  The United States and over 175 countries have signed the "Committing to Child Survival: A Promise Renewed" Pledge to help every country in the world reach a child mortality rate of 20 deaths or fewer per 1,000 live births by the year 2035. 

 

American-led resources and innovations already helped to cut those deaths by 40% since 1990.  Health experts confirm we definitely can get to the 2035 goal, but we need your leadership and your commitment of the necessary funding. 

 

As you plan your Budget Request to Congress for Fiscal Year 2015, we encourage you to increase funding for the programs and organizations that directly impact global child survival, especially USAID’s maternal and child health account and the U.S. contribution to UNICEF.

 

We committed to thinking big when we signed the Pledge last year.  Now we need a bold budget from you to make it happen. 

 

Thank you for joining us in our relentless fight for child survival,

Child Mortality: UNICEF is achieving ZERO

 

The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) works in 190 countries and territories to save and improve children’s lives, providing health care and immunizations, clean water and sanitation, nutrition, education, emergency relief and more. The U.S. Fund for UNICEF supports UNICEF’s work through fundraising, advocacy, and education in the United States. Together, we are working toward the day when zero children die from preventable causes and every child has a safe and healthy childhood. For more information, visit www.unicefusa.org.
