Public Health Infrastructure Funding Sign-On Letter to Congressional Leaders

July 02, 2020

To: Nancy Pelosi, Mitch McConnel, Kevin McCarthy, Chuck Schumer 

"The U.S. has followed a pattern of underfunding of vital public health services, followed by a crisis, a quick infusion of cash, and then dwindling investments over time.5 This pattern is placing American lives at risk. We must think not just of the short-term needs of this pandemic, but the long-term readiness of our nation. We applaud Congress for taking quick action to provide funding for the initial response, including for the state and local public health response. However, short-term, supplemental funding does not allow public health to recruit and retain the expert workforce needed for protecting the nation against emerging threats. We urge you to do act now to prevent and prepare for the next pandemic. "
