What Does It Take to Keep Millions of Children Healthy?
The entire health infrastructure of Ghana, in fact, whole communities across that nation, are about to find out. Today, April 26th, is GO-DAY for two new vaccines in Ghana – one for pneumonia and one for diarrhea, two of the big causes of death for children around the world.
GAVI (the Global Alliance for Vaccines & Immunizations), the people of Ghana, and a host of partners will make history with the roll-out of these two life-saving vaccines. This is what the UN Foundation’s Shot@Life Campaign is all about – bringing you and me into the very heart of global actions like this. Launching today in Atlanta and across the country in dozens of volunteer events, Shot@Life gives you a myriad of ways to support what’s happening in Ghana and other parts of the world on this very day.
