“No child can miss immunisation”: vaccinating children in remote locations in Uganda

The EU has supported vaccination campaigns against COVID-19 throughout Sub-Saharan Africa. In addition to the COVID-19 vaccination campaigns, EU funding supports the rollout of routine childhood immunisations.

This is the story of Wanyena, a midwife and immunising officer working to save children in Uganda’s Mbale. UNICEF’s solar fridges and vaccine carriers safeguard the vaccines until the reach remote communities.
