This week World AIDS day saw renewed discussion around the possibilities of an HIV vaccine, and one new promising vaccine trial was set to kick off.

Education and vaccination organisations partnered up to help the world’s most vulnerable children have a healthy, productive childhood.

Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance was praised by the UK Aid agency, and the Italian government renewed its support for global immunisation programmes.

Timor-Leste, a small country in South East Asia, showed strong signs of immunisation progress, while a polio vaccine campaign got underway in Chad, Africa.

Finally, new game Vaxcards explained why they felt the time was right to entertain and inform kids, teachers and others involved in vaccination.
