儿童疫苗的完全价值

日内瓦—如果你想知道疫苗的价值,去非洲诊所看一看就行了。那里父母亲的脸色说明了一切:疫苗防止病痛,拯救生命。

但这些父母可能没有意识到的是,故事并不仅限于此。他们离开诊所回家时,他们不但改善了孩子的健康,自己也接受了健康教育,朝着美好的长期未来迈进了一步。此外,它们也有助于改善他们自己的生活,改善他们所在社区的经济前景。

    A Belt and Road for the Americas?

    In a time of global uncertainty, a vision of “made in the Americas” prosperity provides a unifying agenda for the continent. If implemented, the US could reassert its historical leadership among a group of countries that share its fundamental values, as well as an interest in inclusive economic growth and rising living standards.
