Millions of children continue to benefit from our sustained nation-wide public health programs: To date 10 million vaccinated, 10 million dewormed, 1 million mothers screened to prevent the transmission of HIV and Hepatitis B to their babies, and thousands of babies screened for congenital heart defects.
Stories from the Field
Nour, a mother of two in Gaza City, said on her way out of the vaccination room: “I am so glad my son is vaccinated now. While the nurse was giving the first dose to my son, the nurse was teaching me what all this about, how it’s helping reduce how much diarrhea our children have. I would urge every mom to get the two doses of vaccine on time.”
