Global Vaccine Summit Provides Momentum To Move Forward Against Polio

In the United Nations Foundation blog, foundation President and CEO Kathy Calvin reports on the Global Vaccine Summit taking place this week in Abu Dhabi. “The commitments made at the Global Vaccine Summit will provide critical resources to help make the Global Polio Eradication Initiative’s eradication and endgame strategy a reality,” she writes, adding, “Working together, we can create a polio-free world. This achievement will save children from a crippling disease and can help pave a path for future public health successes, including strengthening routine immunization and expanding access to other life-saving vaccines” (4/25).
