Sign now: Our leaders must invest in life-saving vaccines

World Immunization Week (24-30 April) is run by the World Health Organization to promote the use of vaccines to protect people against disease. Immunization is one of the best public health tools that we have. It saves millions of lives every year, is cost-effective, and fights against poverty. This is why Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance is so important, especially in this time of crisis.

Vaccines will, of course, be vital in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. As the most vulnerable communities will be affected, we must ensure that everyone is able to access a vaccine equally once they have been developed. A global pandemic demands a global response.

Get up to date with this year’s World Immunization Week by reading these blogs:

Dear World Leaders,
Every child deserves protection against killer diseases like pneumonia, measles, and polio. This only takes one simple tool – immunisation.
Please play your part to support this life-saving work by fully funding Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance. With at least a $7.4 billion replenishment, we can help give another 300 million children a better start in life.
