South Sudan, 2011: One-month-old Monyaguek Mayen is vaccinated against polio, in Unity State. The lives of 1.5 million children globally could be saved each year if they had access to vaccines. Though more children than ever before are being protected with vaccination, which prevents up to 3 million child deaths each year, the poorest and most marginalized children are consistently missing out on life-saving immunizations despite being those who need them the most.
