Geneva, 23 April 2011 – Saving the life of even one child is always a big success. As we celebrate this year’s immunisation week, which begins on 23 April, we congratulate the World Health Organisation and all GAVI Alliance partners on the millions of child lives saved through immunisation.
This year, the African and Western Pacific regions are observing immunisation week for the first time, reinforcing the point that prevention is better than cure.
