Future Health supports launch of Go Give One Vaccine campaign

Future Health is delighted to be supporting the Go Give One campaign backed by the WHO Foundation: https://gogiveone.org/

The Go Give One campaign gives everyone everywhere a chance to play their part in helping to vaccinate the world. Created by the WHO Foundation, the campaign asks individuals to donate $7 for a vaccine dose, with the aim of getting 50 million people to take part in the campaign. The money raised goes to an international fund called COVAX AMC, which buys COVID-19 vaccines for the world, prioritising those who need them the most in countries that cannot afford them. The vast majority of those who have been vaccinated are in high income countries, with low-income countries currently accounting for just 1 in 500 of doses administered. 

Go Give One will launch country by country over the next twelve months, beginning in the UK, US, Israel and Kenya. It will be led by local businesses, charities and governments, supported by global companies and organisations, including Facebook, Global Citizen, Google and the Greta Thunburg Foundation, with a dedicated online giving platform: www.gogiveone.org

Part of the new campaign is a matching feature that allows companies around the world to contribute through a simple fundraising mechanism by putting it in front of its employees or customers. Facebook has provided campaign donations for people who set up a Go Give One fundraiser on their platform, giving up to $5 million in contributions.

Richard Sloggett, Founder and Programme Director of Future Health said “At Future Health our purpose is about getting better health to more people. The pandemic does not respect borders and it is imperative that we get vaccines out across the world.  Future Health is delighted to be working on this vital campaign and encourages everyone who can to take part in getting as many vaccines to as many people as we can.”
