Vaccinate for Africa 2019

13 – 18 May 2019    


Swiss veterinarians support their colleagues in Africa: for the 14th time, the traditional vaccination week organized every year by Vétérinaires Sans Frontières Suisse, will take place from 13 – 18 May 2019.   Veterinary clinics throughout Switzerland collect the revenues from vaccinations, and donate all or parts of them to VSF-Suisse to support our work in Africa.


The donations from “Vaccinate for Africa 2019” will go towards training. To train people, it is essential to have qualified staff, and for this reason, the continuous training of our teams in the field is as important as the one of our beneficiaries.


Every day, around 150 VSF-Suisse staff members engage with the poorest in Ethiopia, Somalia, Kenya, South Sudan, Mali and Togo. We treat animals, distribute food and fodder, rehabilitate waterpoints, train veterinary assistants and thus offer sustainable livelihoods to populations in need.



This year "Vaccinate for Africa" will not only take place in Switzerland. Eight other members of the international VSF network are also organising a vaccination week to support the work of their teams in Africa.
