Lights, Camera, ... Vaccines!
Lights! Camera! … Vaccines? That may not be your first thought, but at the Vaccines Film Festival hosted by the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington, DC this past week, that was the case. [email protected], the ONE campaign, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the GAVI Alliance, PATH, and Hollywood Health joined forces to showcase their short films that inspire action to improve child health by vaccinating kids around the world. I laughed, I cried, and I wanted to do something to save lives. Check out their inspiring videos below.
[email protected] is a UN Foundation campaign promoting GAVI’s new rotavirus and pneumococcal vaccines and basic vaccines for polio and measles. [email protected] has a superb media campaign to draw in new vaccine supporters and then they work to cultivate them into advocates by getting them to email members of Congress and hold community awareness events across the U.S.
