“Vaccines save millions of lives every year; each day they prevent illness and death among children both rich and poor. This would not be possible without the dedicated people – vaccinators, parents, doctors, campaigners, scientists and others – who brave unthinkable challenges to protect children from disease.
These vaccine heroes build the foundations for healthy lives. They help ensure that children not only survive their early years but grow up healthy, avoid diseases in later life, and build a more prosperous future for themselves and their communities.
Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, is proud to support these heroes as they help the world’s poorest countries build sustainable futures. By the end of 2018, together with partners, we will have helped immunise 700 million people, saving 10 million lives since we started in 2000.
Please come and join us as we explore these incredible stories of immunisation progress through the images of people working on the front lines, making vaccines work and building a better life for millions of people around the world.”
