Description Nine month old Emabet is about to receive her measles vaccination, in Ethiopia's Merawi province.

One in ten children across Ethiopia do not live to see their fifth birthday, with many dying of preventable diseases, like measles, pneumonia, malaria and diarrhoea.

But British aid has helped to double immunisation rates across Ethiopia in the past five years, by funding medicines, equipment and training for doctors and nurses.

Additional funding from the UK and other countries will help GAVI roll out new, life-saving vaccines in other countries around the world.
