Measles Initiative helping millions around the world
The American Red Cross has been a founding partner of the Measles Initiative and supported mass vaccination campaigns in more than 60 impoverished countries for nearly 10 years, but the fight to end measles continues. 700 million children have been immunized against measles but 450 people still die from measles every day. You as a youth can do so much to help out, including being aware about the disease itself.
