25 Nov All-star briefing on the Hill puts the spotlight on vaccines
A retired NBA athlete, the executive director of UNICEF, four members of Congress and ONE’s leadership and partner organizations all gathered at an all-star event on Capitol Hill last week.
ONE invited these leaders to talk about the importance and cost-effectiveness of vaccines at an informal briefing for congressional staff and supporters. ONE’s US Executive Director Sheila Nix kicked off the event by showing a video from our Living Proof campaign, which illustrated the impact of the rotavirus vaccine in Nicaragua. Rotavirus is the leading cause of diarrhea, a sickness that kills two million children a year worldwide.
