Covid 19 Vaccines Arrive In Rwanda Via Covax

With financing provided by the German government through KfW Development Bank, UNICEF is supporting the procurement of necessary cold chain equipment, as well as vaccine sensitisation activities and campaigns aimed at increasing vaccine acceptance. It is also supporting risk communication and community engagement activities. The information and sensitisation measures have already reached more than 2.1 million people.
