GIVE FILIPINO KIDS A FAIR SHOT. SIGN THE PETITION #AskPharma TO DROP THE PNEUMONIA VACCINE PRICES IN THE PHILIPPINES!

**TODAY, APRIL 26, IS THE LAST DAY! NEXTDAYBETTER ONLY NEEDS 2,000 MORE SIGN-UPS TO REACH THEIR GOAL. LET'S HELP NEXTDAYBETTER REACH IT AND LOWER THE PRICE FOR THE PNEUMONIA VACCINES!**

Did you know that pneumonia is the leading cause of childhood death in the Philippines? Unfortunately, the pneumonia vaccine is priced too high for all Filipino children to get vaccinated in the long term. That’s because pharmaceutical companies Pfizer & GSK refuse to drop the price.

NextDayBetter and Doctors Without Borders have partnered on a new campaign asking Pfizer & GSK to drop the price of the pneumonia vaccine in the Philippines. Learn more and SIGN THE PETITION here: http://nextdaybetter.com/afairshot/

There’s no denying it, Filipinos are world-class at saving lives. Filipino doctors, nurses, creatives, and community organizers have pushed forward breakthroughs in public health around the world. Now, it’s time to focus this talent towards the Philippines.
