This is Maria. As a teenager, she received the hepatitis B vaccine as part of RVF’s nationwide hepatitis B vaccination catch-up program for adolescents in Russia. Now, her daughter Natalia has received the PCV vaccine as part of RVF’s pilot Pneumococcal Vaccine program in St. Petersburg. Two generations of Russians are now benefiting from RVF’s sustainable programming!
RVF (Rostropovich-Vishnevskaya Foundation) focuses on conducting large-scale vaccination initiatives targeting children, youth, women of child-bearing age and at-risk health care workers. To date, over 10 million individuals have benefited from RVF’s vaccination programs throughout the former Soviet Union and the Middle East.
