    Measles moves fast.

    More than 60% of the 21.5 million children who did not receive one dose of measles vaccine in 2013 came from only 6 countries:

    India: 6.4M | Nigeria: 2.7M | Pakistan: 1.7M | Ethiopia: 1.1M | Indonesia: 0.7M | DR Congo: 0.7M

    Most deaths due to measles occur in developing countries.

    70% of measles deaths in 2013 were in the 6 countries listed above.

    Failure to vaccinate children against measles puts them at serious risk of severe health complications, such as pneumonia, diarrhea, brain damage, blindness.

    It costs about $1 to vaccinate a child against both measles and rubella at the same time in most low-income countries.

    Let's move faster.
