DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Research and Markets is pleased to announce its support of UNICEF’s
global vaccination programme. UNICEF and its partners are working hard
to ensure the lives of all children are protected with life-saving
vaccines. The support of Research and Markets will enable UNICEF to
provide over 40,000 vaccines to children in the greatest need.
Announcing the partnership, Ross Glover, CEO of Research and Markets
said: “As a father to four young children born in an economically
developed country, I took their immunisation against diseases such as
polio and measles for granted. Unfortunately, one in five children
globally are not afforded the basic vaccines they need to stay healthy.
“Research and Markets has worked with UNICEF on a number of projects
aimed at protecting the rights of children. We have complete admiration
for the work done by UNICEF and are delighted to work with them once
again to help towards giving all children this basic start in life.”
UNICEF reaches more children with lifesaving immunisation than any other
organisation – around half the world’s children. Research and Markets’
support is focused on the immunisation of children against polio and
Polio can cause crippling paralysis or death within hours of infection.
There is no cure but the polio vaccine is safe and effective and saves
young lives. With the support of Research and Markets, UNICEF is closer
to eradicating this highly infectious and incurable disease.
Every year, measles kills approximately 118,000 children worldwide.
That’s more than 300 children every day. Measles survivors are often
left with life-long disabilities, such as blindness, deafness or brain
damage. Research and Markets’ support enables UNICEF to vaccinate some
of the world’s most vulnerable children against this deadly disease.
Peter Power, Executive Director at UNICEF, said “UNICEF is on the
cusp of eliminating Polio worldwide. With the help of Research and
Markets we are taking a big step towards realising this goal. At UNICEF,
we will do whatever it takes to protect children from preventable
diseases – we send vaccines by plane, bicycle, by donkey or camel to
reach children who cannot be easily reached.
“And UNICEF reach children whatever the circumstances, during war,
natural disasters or famine. But we wouldn’t be able to do this without
the support of companies like Research and Markets. Every euro they have
donated to UNICEF means another child can be immunised against a
life-threatening disease. Thank you to the team at Research and Markets
for helping us save lives.”
