JOARJO is proud to announce that we are already part of the Alliance for Child Vaccination together with la Caixa Foundation and Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, an international solidarity initiative that saves the lives of millions of children from premature deaths and it’s working for the Next Generation.

Thanks to JOARJO’s support as the new Sponsor of this Alliance, this company once again demonstrates its generous social responsibility in helping those who need it most. We join the fight against infant mortality.

In the poorest countries every 20 seconds a child dies from causes preventable with vaccines. At this time, its importance is evident more than ever. If vaccination routines are interrupted in the countries most in need, COVID-19 will be joined by other epidemics with higher mortality, such as pneumonia or measles, HIV as well as polio.

JOARJO’s financial contribution will be used to distribute the pneumococcal vaccine in Mozambique, thus protecting the child population against pneumonia (the main cause of global infant mortality). In this way, we will help achieve the main objective: to reduce child mortality and protect the health of communities, increasing access to immunization in the poorest countries.

This Alliance, born in 2008, promoted by La Caixa Foundation and Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, to combat child mortality, and with the advice of the Barcelona Institute for Global Health (ISGlobal), has contributed to saving the lives of 6.3 million children under 5 years old.

All the contributions received in these years, to which must be added that of JOARJO as Sponsor, share the same commitment: to see new generations growing with a future thanks to child vaccination.

This Alliance also contributes to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals established by the United Nations, framed in the 2030 Agenda and supported by JOARJO’s corporate social responsibility; an action plan for people, the planet and prosperity
