Preventing pneumonia: Emeli Sande learns about life-saving vaccines in Uganda

About the project

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.

How you can help

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.
