Comic Relief supports the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunisation (GAVI) to increase access to childhood immunisation in the world’s poorest countries.
This grant helps fund the delivery of a combination of vaccines, including the pneumococcal vaccine which immunises against one of the leading causes of childhood pneumonia.
Pneumonia is a preventable illness, but Joffrey was not given the vaccine which could have protected him. Sadly, five month old Joffrey passed away from pneumonia. In Africa, around £5 could fully vaccinate a child against five deadly childhood diseases.
