Africa United is a platform that leverages sport to catalyze action on health, led by the Confederation of African Football (CAF) and the African Union, Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, World Bank Group and CDC Foundation, and includes African leaders, international health bodies, private companies, celebrities, NGOs and other multi-sector actors.
Nearly one third of deaths among children under five are preventable by vaccine, and millions of African children remain unprotected from life-threatening but preventable health conditions. Africa United is currently being deployed to catalyze popular and political will around universal vaccination use across the continent.
