REGISTER: mobilizing for global access to vaccines #ForOurFuture

By: Results Canada Published: 08/07/2024

Date: July 24, 2024

Time: ✨ 12 pm ET ✨ 

In 2023, 21 million children remained under-immunized or zero-dose, missing out on essential life-saving vaccines. This is brought on by poor access to health services, most commonly due to reasons such as conflict, climate change, poverty, isolation, or displacement. Community health workers play a key role in reaching these children through creative strategies, implemented in partner countries with the support and expertise of global health initiatives.

To mark the start of #ForOurFuture campaign, we're bringing together immunization experts with diverse perspectives, from experts in health systems strengthening to local advocates with first-hand experience. Register now to connect with and celebrate the accomplishments of vaccine advocates around the world!
