Johns Hopkins School of Public Health started this petition to USAID Administrator Dr. Rajiv Shah

Dr. Rajiv Shah was sworn in on January 7, 2010 as the new USAID Administrator.  This is a great opportunity to welcome Dr. Shah to his new leadership position and to call on him to take up the cause of pneumonia and diarrhea, the world's two leading causes of child mortality.  Millions of lives can be saved. 

Dr. Shah has led and worked with many of the initiatives that are defining best practice in the field of development, including the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization, the Global Fund for AIDS, TB and Malaria, the Alliance for a Green Revolution for Africa, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.  His tireless efforts to immunize children around the world have helped save countless lives. 

Please take a moment to sign and submit the letter to Dr. Shah below. Please forward this page to any colleagues or friends you think might be interested. Thank you for your action and support.
