A new resolution on Frontline Health Workers proposed to United States Congress
A new resolution recognizing the importance of frontline health workers towards accelerating progress on global health was introduced to the U.S. congress recently by Representative Nita Lowey.
The resolution honors the vital role that frontline health workers play in saving lives. It also asks US agencies to coordinate efforts to support these essential professionals in developing countries. Training these professionals is a low-cost and community-focused way of helping build a healthier and more stable country. Rep. Lowey’s resolution brings attention to this extremely important solution to improving health. The resolution has now been referred to the committee on Foreign Affairs.
