Panel Event in support of “Saving Every Women, Every Child”
On the eve of Prime Minister Harper’s “Saving Every Women, Every Child” Summit, RESULTS Canada, in partnership with the Munk School of Global Affairs and the GAVI Alliance, will be hosting a pre-summit event.
As the recent measles outbreaks in Canada demonstrate, infectious diseases have no borders. Children all over the world must receive routine immunizations to prevent these diseases from spreading. Today, 22 million children do not receive these basic vaccines, and receiving them could mean the difference between life and death.
Join us for a panel discussion to learn about the impact of global immunization campaigns and to promote the importance of vaccines in saving the lives of millions of children with:
- Sarah Taylor, TV Host, Photographer, Activist (Moderator)
- Dr. Mercy Ahun, Special Representative for GAVI eligible countries (Panelist)
- Dr. John Kirton, Director of the G8 Research Group (Panelist)
- Mickey Chopra, Chief of Health, UNICEF (Panelist)
