International Woman and Child Health Act of 1992 - Requires U.S. contributions to international organizations and nongovernmental organizations for programs to immunize people in high-mortality countries for diseases such as measles or polio to be at least $100,000,000 greater in each of FY 1993 through 1995 than the amount of such contributions for FY 1992.
Provides additional funding for vitamin A supplementation and fortification programs and iodine and iron supplementation and fortification programs for pregnant women.
