On the heels of World Immunization Week, Speak Up Africa and Global Citizen have partnered to launch the #EveryShotCounts Petition. Both organizations focus on catalyzing action through an engaged citizenry, and this collaboration is a unification of both of their efforts. Through the #Shots4All petition, Speak Up Africa aims to secure 10,000 signatures from African citizens calling on heads of state to prioritize universal access to immunization for African children – and we need your help!
With political will and funding lacking across much of the African Region, #EveryShotCounts will create a groundswell of support to lobby for universal access to immunization. The petition will activate thousands of global citizens, celebrities, and influencers in the lead up to the African Union Summit in July. At the Summit, Global Citizen and Speak Up Africa will hand over the petition to the African Heads of State.
