PAAO President’s Message

February 2021

“Vaccines are one of our most important tools for preventing outbreaks and keeping the world safe. Unacceptably it’s often those who are most at risk – the poorest, the most marginalized, those touched by conflict or forced from their homes – who are persistently missed.”

– Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus (Director- General, WHO)”

Message from the PAOF Chair

We have come to the end of a challenging year. I would like to take this opportunity to thank our Pan-American community for its unceasing support. As Mother Teresa said, “To keep a lamp burning, we have to keep putting oil in it.”
