a Healthier Future for Mothers and Children, WHO, Geneva, Switzerland

WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus and Rotary International President for 2022-2023 Jennifer Jones will discuss the work the two organizations have done together for decades to eradicate polio and how they will continue to work together on a healthier future for mothers and children.  Experts in polio, vaccines, and maternal and child health will present the many opportunities for children who have been saved from polio and, along with their mothers, other vaccine-preventable diseases, to benefit from the preventive and life-saving services associated with it.  This will allow mothers to have a positive pregnancy experience and young children to reach their full developmental potential.
