15 Nov Uganda: Our Children Should Live to Celebrate Their Fifth Birthday
In Africa, we understand how fragile life is. Too many babies die from diseases that take our children before they even reach the age of five. One of the biggest killers is pneumonia – and soon, we will have a vaccine that can help stop it in its tracks.
Not only will the AMC get pneumococcal vaccines to African countries in record time, but it will also reduce the price of the vaccines by approximately 90 per cent on average. This was made possible by a coalition of international donors, including the GAVI Alliance, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and five countries – the United Kingdom, Canada, Russia, Norway and Italy.
