Photo of the Week: Vanuatu’s ‘10,000 in 10’ campaign

Vanuatu, 2015: Tropical Cyclone Pam, which hit on 13 March, has disrupted access to safe water and sanitation in the South Pacific island nation, increasing children’s risk of water- and vector-borne diseases.

The ‘10,000 in 10’ campaign, launched on 18 March, aims to immunize 10,000 children 6 to 59 months of age against measles and rubella, in 21 villages over a period of 10 days.

In this photo, children near the shore in Port Vila watch a boat further out that is taking an immunization team to a nearby island.
