Get them to take a stand on vaccines
1 in 5 children still do not have access to the vaccines they need. We can change this.
From 28-30 May, world leaders will be meeting at the Saving Every Women Every Child Summit in Toronto to discuss international commitments to women and children in the developing world. Let’s get them to take a stand on vaccines.
In spite of the Millennium Development Goal to reduce child mortality, over 6 million children died of vaccine-preventable diseases in 2012. The time has come for the world to renew its commitments to the poorest children.
Join us in calling on Prime Minister Harper to make vaccination a top priority for the Summit to ensure that every child has a healthy start to life.
