Global Display attaches to the Alianza Empresarial para la Vacunación Infantil
Global Display attaches to the Alianza Empresarial para la Vacunación Infantil (Business Alliance for the Children’s Vaccination) which collaborate at the same time in the Gavi the Vaccine Alliance project.
This project is an initiative of global entrepreneurial social responsibility that helps to defend a basic right, the right to the health.
According to the WHO, each year almost 6.3 million children die in the world before they reach age 5 due to diseases that could be avoided with a simple vaccine. There are 22 million children across the world that do not have access to the vaccination.
Gavi the Vaccine Alliance is a public-private alliance that combats child mortality through vaccination and the strengthening of the sanitary systems of the poorest countries in the world.
Since this alliance was set up in the year 2000, more than 500 million vaccines have been supplied, which according to the WHO has saved over 7 million lives.
To promote this alliance, Obra Social de la Caixa y Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, through the initiative The Matching Fund, match twice the capital contribution that each one provides for all the contributions made to Gavi on the part of the private sector. So the contributions from Spanish enterprises to Alianza Empresarial para la Vacunación Infantil, are multiplied fourfold, as are the efforts to combat child mortality.
