On World Moms Blog we try to make every day International Women’s Day! But, today is really THE day! If you’ve been reading us, you know that we champion life-saving vaccinations for children in developing nations through the UN Foundation’s Shot@Life campaign and the GAVI Alliance.
However, on this day for women, we want to tell you about how the GAVI Alliance is also working to save the lives of many women in the developing world.
Every two minutes, statistically, a woman dies of cervical cancer. And now GAVI financing and programs have paved the way to offer life-saving HPV vaccinations to help prevent these deaths in places where it’s not so easy or affordable or possible to keep up with regular pap smears.
At World Moms Blog we value our children, and we know that every child deserves a mom.
To read more about GAVI’s program and see how they are making a difference, please visit the GAVI site.
