ONE Campaign: Taking Action to End Preventable Disease
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the ONE campaign work together to advocate for global child health and wellbeing, including initiatives around immunization, pediatric HIV/AIDS, and energy poverty.
Their first and ongoing collaboration was around vaccine advocacy to ensure continued U.S. government support for the GAVI Alliance (GAVI), a public-private partnership that helps to assure that more children can access the vaccines they need to stay healthy. Since 2000, GAVI has supported the immunization of 440 million children and has saved more than 6 million lives.
In addition to providing access to vaccines, ONE is also committed to ending extreme poverty around the world. Proper nutrition, safe drinking water and reliable community resources all play a role in children’s healthy development.
