La pleine valeur de la vaccination des enfants

GENÈVE – Si vous voulez vraiment savoir la valeur des vaccins, vous n’avez qu’à passer un peu de temps dans une clinique en Afrique. Les visages des mères et des pères ne mentent pas : les vaccins préviennent les maladies et sauvent des vies.

Mais ce que ces parents ne savent peut-être pas, c’est que l’histoire ne s’arrête pas là. Car alors qu’ils quittent la clinique et rentrent chez eux, ils ont non seulement déjà agi pour améliorer la santé de leur enfant, mais ils ont en plus augmenté les chances pour leur progéniture d’obtenir une éducation et de jouir d’un avenir pérenne. Qui plus est, ils auront aussi contribué à l’amélioration de leurs propres vies et des perspectives économiques de l’ensemble de leur collectivité.

Les causes en sont simples. Tout le monde sait que des enfants en bonne santé n’ont pas besoin de traitements ou de soins médicaux onéreux en temps et en argent. Aussi, en évitant de tomber malades, les nourrissons ont une meilleure chance de grandir en santé et d’aller à l’école et de devenir des membres plus productifs de la société.

    The Next Battle in China’s War on Corruption

    • Chinese President Xi Jinping knows well the threat that corruption poses to the authority of the Communist Party of China and the state it controls. 
    • But moving beyond Xi's anti-corruption purge to build robust and lasting anti-graft institutions will not be easy, owing to enduring opportunities for bureaucratic capture.

    Putting Europe’s Long-Term Unemployed Back to Work

    Across the European Union, millions of people who are willing and able to work have been unemployed for a year or longer, at great cost to social cohesion and political stability. If the EU is serious about stopping the rise of populism, it will need to do more to ensure that labor markets are working for everyone.

    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.

    How Best to Promote Research and Development

    Clearly, there is something appealing about a start-up-based innovation strategy: it feels democratic, accessible, and so California. But it is definitely not the only way to boost research and development, or even the main way, and it is certainly not the way most major innovations in the US came about during the twentieth century.

    Preparing for the Trump Trade Wars

    In the first 11 months of his presidency, Donald Trump has failed to back up his words – or tweets – with action on a variety of fronts. But the rest of the world's governments, and particularly those in Asia and Europe, would be mistaken to assume that he won't follow through on his promised "America First" trade agenda.
