We are pleased to announce our Action call for July, titled: ‘A child’s life saved every forty seconds’ what comes next for vaccines? The aim of this month’s action is to develop long term financial support from the European Commission for both the GAVI alliance and for research and development into new vaccines for diseases like TB, Malaria and HIV/AIDS.
This is the letter my MP Karen Buck received from the under Secretary of State for International Development Stephen O'Brien.
Letter from Stephen O'Brien to Sarah Luford MEP
Dear Meg Munn,
I am writing to you to respectfully bring your attention to the ongoing and worsening crisis surrounding Tuberculosis. The past 24th of this month was World TB Day and I hope that this year will mark the beginning of a concerted political effort in finally realising the threat of TB both in developing countries and here at home.
This month we are introducing a nationwide fundraising and advocacy campaign called Live Below the Line. The campaign is designed to raise awareness of the fact that 1.4 billion people in the world live below the extreme poverty line, on less than £1 a day. We are using the opportunity to raise awareness about TB, which is both a cause and an effect of extreme poverty, and kills millions of people every year.
This is the letter I wrote to my MP, Chuka Umunna.
