Poll: US voters support funding UN health efforts

The poll comes as lawmakers debate significant cuts to federal spending, including cuts to global health funding and foreign aid.

"As election-year polls continue to show the American electorate split on a wide variety of issues, a vast majority of voters agree on one issue in particular: the value of a strong U.S.-WHO relationship," said United Nations Foundation President Timothy Wirth said in a statement. "Continued U.S. engagement in the WHO’s efforts to curb disease and ensure girls' and women's access to adequate healthcare will ensure we lead efforts to build a safer, healthier future for our children."
