Call on President Obama to Fight the Two Biggest Killers of Young Children Worldwide

Rotavirus and Pneumonia are the top two biggest killers of children under age 5. Combined, they claim 2 million lives each year. With adequate access to vaccination, however, this death toll could be greatly reduced.

The health and safety of children in the world's 72 poorest countries can't wait. On July 25th, President Obama has an opportunity to address this pressing issue at the 36th annual G-8 summit.

TAKE ACTION! Ask President Obama to set an example for the world's leaders by making Pneumonia and Rotavirus vaccines a priority in U.S. relief funding. We'll personally deliver your message to the White House.
