The House of Representatives voted on a package of fiscal year 2020 appropriations bills that funds important public health and research programs, including the Title X grant program. Title X health centers provide reproductive and preventive health care to a patient population of primarily low-income women and adolescents.
It is critical that your Senators and Representative now hear from YOU about the need to pass the House appropriations bill before October 1st and support access to affordable reproductive and preventive health care!
The Endocrine Society is urging the Senate to provide $41.1 billion for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in fiscal year (FY) 2020, an increase of $2 billion over FY 2019. While there is bipartisan support for NIH, to achieve increased funding the Congress must first reach agreement on raising current statutory spending caps or we will see dramatic cuts in total federal spending starting in FY 2020.
Contact your Senators and Representative TODAY and urge them to support and pass the House Labor-HHS bill before the October 1st deadline!
Advocacy in the EU
The European Commission has launched initial steps towards developing a comprehensive strategy, but additional pressure is needed to ensure that it follows through on this important effort. With the election of a new European Parliament, we have an opportunity to raise the profile of EDCs and ensure that the Parliament prioritizes this issue throughout their 5-year term from 2019-2024.
Urge your EU Parliamentary Representative to prioritize science-based regulation of EDCs today!
