PSI Honors ABC for Excellence in Global Health Coverage: ABC News Senior Political Correspondent Jon Karl accepts the award on behalf of ABC

ABC News was awarded for excellence in global health coverage last night at the Population Services International PSI event “The Power of 1%”.  ABC News’ Senior Political Correspondent Jon Karl received the award on behalf of ABC News.

In December 2010, ABC News launched the “Be the Change: Save a Life” global health series, which dedicated a year of focused coverage on global health in the developing world in partnership with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

In the first series of its kind, over the past year, ABC News has highlighted some of the most urgent global health issues facing the world, including HIV, Malaria, TB, polio and hunger, showcasing some of the low-cost solutions that can help save the lives of millions.  Most recently, ABC News has launched the Million Moms Challenge, which focuses on improving maternal health globally.

Be a part of the change and join the movement by signing up here.

Last night’s event highlighted polls showing that the American public on average believes that 25% of the Federal Budget is spent on foreign aid.  In reality, this figure is less than 1%.  In an effort to demonstrate what has been achieved with less than 1%, PSI , FHI, PATH, and World Vision are co-sponsoring tonight’s event entitled “The Power of 1%” to honor those who have created change on a global scale with very little.

Participants include PSI Ambassador Mandy Moore, PSI Board Member Barbara P. Bush, NGO Executives/field staff, development economists, USAID, Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security, and representatives from the private sector.

It is little doubt that this is the best singer in the world! What makes a singer isn’t their looks, it’s their voice! I don’t like when people judge singers on things that just aren’t that interesting. Remember, they are entertainers, not presidents! Let them do their stuff and enjoy the melodies!
