Big problems, small solutionsSpain
Vaccines save between 2 and 3 million lives each year. However, 14 million children in the world still do not receive any vaccines. And now, amid the global COVID-19 pandemic, vaccination is more critical than ever and the progress made until the moment is at risk.

As the name implies, there are big problems that can have a very small solution. For example, diseases that cause thousands of deaths every year. Vaccines are a solution contained in a very small vial, economic, simple and very effective to guarantee the survival of children. In the current context, we are seeing how vaccines are the solution to problems that affect us all.
Now the global pandemic is a clear reminder of how quickly an outbreak can spread without a vaccine to protect people and communities.
A vaccine for COVID-19 is not yet available, but we do have safe and effective vaccines for other serious and highly contagious diseases like measles. While we take appropriate measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19, we must strive, whenever possible, to ensure that children are up-to-date on their immunisation schedule. Vaccines are one of the most powerful tools at our disposal to ensure the survival of children.
- Support the Health Ministries to improve and expand routine vaccination services, so that families can vaccinate their children on a regular basis in health centres and hospitals.
- Organise specific vaccination campaigns to reach places and children far from primary care centres.
- Identify girls, boys and communities that are being left behind through immunization interventions.
- Find ways to reach all children, wherever they are: where children are not immunised, AND their lives and their communities are in danger.
- Work to ensure effective vaccine management processes, so that throughout the supply chain, the OMS standards are met regarding the supply system, the availability and quality of vaccines, and the efficient use of resources.
- Accompany fathers, mothers and caregivers with truthful and verified information on vaccination.
