19 May Success of ‘Decade of Vaccines’ will shape Africa’s hope to share in world prosperity
Bill Gates, Daily Nation
Last year I called for the world to accelerate progress on vaccines because they are one of the best long-term investments we can make. They are inexpensive, easy to deliver, and proven to prevent disease and give children a healthy start to life.
Today, I am more optimistic than ever before about the future impact of vaccines. With the commitment of government leaders in Africa and around the world, we can save four million lives by 2015 and 10 million by 2020.
