So many proud mums here in a vaccine centre in Accra, Ghana, and hardworking nurses. A really hot and humid day but lots of babies waiting patiently and suprisingly little crying! Children here in Ghana also get rotavirus vaccine, because diarrhoea accounts for 10% of deaths among Ghana’s under-fives. Comic Relief has given GAVI a grant of $200,000 to provide rotavirus vaccine in Ghana to help prevent against this potentially fatal condition.
Penny, Annie and Tanya have been in Ghana catching up with the good work that has taken place there since Comic Relief started their work 25 years ago. Such a lot has happened in that time and I am very proud of my fellow bloggers who have made the epic journey to see how the work of Comic Relief has improved the lives and futures of the people of Ghana. It shows us how much we take our health and our health care service for granted. Thanks guys! x
