Why do we need a renewed global effort for immunization?

UNICEF 93-COV 0067 CHINA/R. LEMOYNEThe Alliance has been formed to address three key problems:

  • One in four children worldwide still does not receive the "basic" vaccines against diseases such as measles, diphtheria, tetanus, and whooping cough. [more]

  • The "vaccine gap" between rich and poor children is widening.[more]

  • Three major killers with a combined annual death toll of five million - HIV, TB and malaria - cannot be prevented by existing vaccines and research on vaccines for these diseases has been underfunded.[more]
