She said that by focusing on the health of children and women, Vaccine Network and the special adviser’s office would aim to contribute to the overall development and well-being of the Nigerian population.
“The partnership will also involve advocacy and awareness campaigns to promote the importance of vaccinations and maternal health practices,” she said.
