Measles

Measles is one of the leading causes of death among young children worldwide. A safe, effective vaccine exists, but not everyone has access to it.

Outbreaks spread quickly – the disease is highly contagious, and is spread through an infected person’s coughs, sneezes and breath. Symptoms include a rash, fever, eye infection and cough.

Malnourished children under five years old are most likely to die from severe complications, which include diarrhoea, dehydration and inflammation of the brain.
