Summary

Every 20 seconds, a child dies of a disease that could have easily be prevented with a vaccine. The UN Foundation's Shot@Life Campaign educates, connects and empowers Americans to champion vaccines as one of the most cost-effective ways to save the lives of children in developing countries. Together, we can decrease vaccine-preventable childhood deaths and give every child a shot at a healthy life.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

One in five children lacks access to the life-saving immunizations that keep children healthy. In fact, approximately 1.5 million children in developing countries die each year of a preventable disease like pneumonia, diarrhea, measles and polio. Put another way, one child dies every 20 seconds from a disease that could have been prevented by a vaccine.

How will this project solve this problem?

Immunization campaigns have saved the lives of more children than any other medical intervention in the last 50 years. Vaccines are safe, simple and one of the most cost-effective ways to save and improve the lives of children worldwide. We educate, connect and empower Americans to champion vaccines as one of the most cost-effective ways to save lives. Join us today to help save the lives of millions of children in developing countries.

Potential Long Term Impact

Coordinated worldwide vaccination efforts have made significant progress, particularly in reducing cases of measles and polio, but funding gaps could threaten these gains. By scaling-up the delivery of vaccines in 72 of the world's poorest countries from 2011-2020, we can save $151 billion through reduced treatment costs and gains in productivity. We can save the 1.5 million children in developing countries who die each year of a preventable disease like pneumonia, diarrhea, measles and polio.
