“...you won’t find a single one of us
health assistants lacking in motivation!”
COVID-19 lockdowns and overwhelmed health systems have disrupted vaccination campaigns around the world. New data shows that 60 life-saving vaccination campaigns are currently postponed in 50 countries.
That’s putting millions of children at risk of deadly diseases like, measles, polio and yellow fever.
Right now, COVID-19 is having a devastating impact in India where UNICEF is on the ground protecting families. But we must not forget the children in other countries who are missing out on life-saving vaccines and are in danger as a result of the pandemic.
That’s why Bina’s role is so important. If vaccination coverage is not improved, there could be severe outbreaks of preventable diseases, with children most at risk.
UNICEF is on the ground providing:
- Prevention – we deliver vaccines to even the most remote places on earth
- Vaccination – vaccine carriers for health care workers like Bina to keep vaccines safe
- Protection – protective boots, masks, gloves and coveralls to UNICEF vaccinators protecting children where there are outbreaks of COVID-19
We already reach almost half of the world’s children with life-saving vaccines every year. But we need your help to ensure that diseases from the past, stay in the past.
Together, we can make sure make sure COVID-19 doesn’t send children’s health backwards.
