ASC helps out with child vaccination
American Supply has been awarded the certificate from the business journal Alianza Empresarial for Child Vaccination in acknowledgement of its cooperation and help in the fight against infant mortality in the poorest countries of the world. With its contributions, ASC has become the Silver sponsor of the Alianza Empresarial initiative for Child Vaccination.
This project, by GAVI Vaccinie Alliance and la Caixa, started in 2000 in response to the urgent need to increase the immunization coverage in developing countries and therefore help decrease infant mortality, a scourge that especially affects the most deprived and underprivileged states.
Since the beginning of this project, more than 2.5 million children have been vaccinated and it is calculated that it has managed to prevent around 7 million deaths.
At ASC we are proud of being part of such an important and necessary project and we encourage other companies to join the venture to contribute to making the world a better place.
