Immunisation is one of the most cost-effective and successful ways to save children's lives. No matter where they are in the world - children who are vaccinated have a better chance to survive, thrive and reach their potential.
Millions of children are left unimmunised every year either because vaccines and health services are unavailable or inaccessible, or because families lack information about immunisation. When almost one third of deaths among children under the age of five are preventable by vaccine, we must do all we can do prioritise timely and effective immunisation.
