Children’s vaccination

Children’s vaccination

Every year in the world 6,5 million of children under 5 years die because of diseases that, with appropriate vaccination, could be avoided. Vaccination is one of the best solutions so that children can have a healthy life from the beginning.

Gavi (Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunisation) is an international organization that was created in 2.000 to improve access to new vaccines for children living in the world’s poorest countries. Gavi was the first public-private global partnership fighting against infant mortality by promoting vaccination. According to Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (founding members of Gavi) in the last 15 years deaths in developing countries have been reduced.

La Obra Social “la Caixa” and Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation have joined to finance the necessary vaccines to protect children from the 70 poorest countries in the world. In addition, for every donation, Obra Social multiplied by four this value, therefore, the efforts against child mortality will quadruple.

PromoFarma wants to join the cause and, together with Obra Social “la Caixa” and Gavi, will give access to vaccines to children living in developing countries in order to help that child mortality in these countries continue to decline.

With the help of Promofarma customers, Gavi and Obra Social “la Caixa” may introduce and give an equitable coverage of vaccines in developing countries and they will provide to the population living in these countries easy access to the vaccines. With their help it may also adapt the markets to the vaccines and other products related to immunization.

As we said previously, Obra Social will multiply by four each donation of Promofarma customers. Considering that each vaccine worth 8€, Promofarma customers will donate 3.500€ and Obra Social “la Caixa” will quadruple this amount, 1.750 vaccines will be provided to children living in developing countries.

Thanks to children’s vaccination the children living in developing countries mortality rate will be reduced and, at the same time, we will help to improve the health of the population of those countries.
