About 400 people – most of them children – die every day from measles. This disease can easily be prevented with a vaccine, but for many families around the world, the measles vaccine is not always readily available.

This highly infectious disease doesn’t respect borders, and until we stop measles around the world, countries like the United States are at risk of importing the disease from other countries where the measles persists.

That’s why we need to expand access to the measles vaccine – so we can stop this disease and give children everywhere a chance at a healthier, happier life. It costs only about $1 to vaccinate a child in developing countries against measles and give them protection against this deadly disease.

Help us give children around the world access to vaccines.

Sign this petition to show your support for the United Nations’ efforts to vaccinate children everywhere against diseases like measles.
