How we are protecting the Prevention and Public Health Fund
WHAT WE'RE DOING TO RESPOND TO THIS ATTACK ON PUBLIC HEALTH
In March 2017, we sent a letter to U.S. House leaders, urging them to to protect the fund. Earlier in the month, our members convened in Washington, D.C. to tell Congress how these cuts would affect their cities and counties.
Along with more than 500 organizations, we signed onto a letter to President Trump about how cutting the CDC would undermine Americans’ health.
In January, we joined with 300 other public health groups to warn Congressional leaders about the "dire consequences" that would occur if the Prevention and Public Health Fund were to be repealed without a replacement.
