What does it cost to save a life?

The answer: less than $1. Through cost-effective vaccinations, the Measles Initiative has helped to save 3.6 million lives over the last decade. On this podcast episode, volunteer Sandy Tesch discusses her trip to The Gambia to observe a vaccination campaign. For more information on the Initiative, check out MeaslesInitiative.org. image

Also: the Facebook Gift Store has added a virtual gift for 60 credits to vaccinate 5 children in the developing world from measles. Send it to your friends!
