WASHINGTON, D.C. – The President and CEO of the U.S. Global Leadership Coalition, Liz Schrayer, released the following statement on emergency funding for COVID-19:
While addressing the urgent health and economic crisis facing our nation, the bipartisan response for the State Department and USAID was a good down payment. But it’s time to get real because there is no way to defeat COVID-19 or any future pandemic at home unless we are also fighting it around the world – and that means a serious commitment to global health security.
The U.S. Global Leadership Coalition (www.usglc.org) is a broad-based influential network of 500 businesses and NGOs; national security and foreign policy experts; and business, faith-based, academic, military, and community leaders in all 50 states who support strategic investments to elevate development and diplomacy alongside defense in order to build a better, safer world.
