Preparing a measles vaccine in Ethiopia

A nurse at Merawi health centre in northern Ethiopia prepares a measles vaccine for delivery.


Ethiopia is one of more than 70 developing countries benefitting from the support of the GAVI Alliance.


Three years ago, there were fewer than 750 health centres across Ethiopia. Now, thanks in part to support from British aid, there are more than 2100 health centres providing vaccinations and other life-saving care.
