Statement on Congressional Action to Combat Zika and Aid Flint


.

Doctors for America Chair Dr. Mona Mangat:

“Doctors and medical students applaud Congress for putting patients over politics in approving the passage of a short-term spending bill, which contains $1.1 billion in funding to combat the Zika virus. We also applaud Congress for taking a step forward to ensure the residents of Flint get the aid they desperately need. Physicians know all too well the importance of this vital funding in preventing the spread of Zika and ensuring the people of Flint have access to clean water. These actions will help us move in the direction of ensuring a healthier America for everyone.”
