LAST CALL: Support Lead Poisoning Prevention and Promote Healthy Housing

Lead crises in Flint, Michigan and across the country remind us that lead poisoning remains a national health concern. Hundreds of thousands of children aged one to five years old in the U.S. have blood lead levels above 5 micrograms
per deciliter, which can have significant long term consequences on development. At the same time, government efforts to prevent lead poisoning and promote healthy housing have been consistently underfunded for the last several years. For
instance, there is no national surveillance system for lead poisoning.

Prevent Antimicrobial Resistance and Preserve Effective Antibiotics – Last Call

Antibiotic resistance is the greatest public health threat of our time. Currently resistant bacteria infect over
2 million and kill at least 23,000 Americans every year, accounting for direct health-care costs of $20-35 billion. Globally, 700,000 die and the cost could be as high as
$1.2 trillion. If we do not act now, by 2050 antibiotic resistant infections will be the leading cause of death – surpassing cancer – and could

cost the world $100 trillion. Although antibiotics literally transformed the practice of modern medicine, we have been poor stewards of their effectiveness and we
risk losing the greatest medical advance of the 20th century.
