Global Health

Every two minutes, a woman dies from pregnancy or childbirth-related complications.  Women in developing countries have fifteen times the risk of dying than women in the developed world.  These deaths are further complicated by the HIV/AIDS epidemic in some countries.  I am committed to ensuring that all women have access to family planning methods. 

I am an advocate for America’s continued commitment to serving as the world leader in HIV/AIDS research and being the largest funder of global HIV/AIDS programs in the world.  Increasing access to contraceptive services and increasing women’s access to HIV/AIDS prevention around the world will reduce maternal deaths worldwide and allow women to play a vital role in advancing  the economies of developing countries.
