According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and the Gavi vaccine alliance, measles campaigns are the most affected worldwide.
In order to address these challenges and support the recovery from the pandemic, WHO, UNICEF, Gavi and other agencies launched the 2030 Immunization Agenda on Monday. It’s an ambitious new global strategy aimed at increasing the impact of life-saving vaccines through stronger immunization systems, UN Secretary-General Deputy Spokesperson Farhan Haq stated.
The pandemic reveals everything that is at stake when there is a lack of vaccine protection, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres tweeted.
The idea is to show how vaccination connects us with people, goals and moments that really matter the most, thus helping to improve people’s health, he stressed.
In this regard, WHO stressed that vaccines will help to curb the Covid-19 pandemic ‘so that we can finally be closer to each other afresh.’
