Booklet entitled "Las Vacunas", containing text and coloured cartoons giving information about various diseases and their prevention by childhood vaccination, for use in public health campaigns in Colombia, produced in Colombia in association with UNICEF, 1980-1993
From a booklet called Vaccines, the illustration shows the red rash associated with measles. The booklet was used to promote vaccination against five of the main diseases responsible for childhood deaths: measles, tetanus, whooping cough, diphtheria and polio. Each illustration has a caption written in Spanish explaining the value of vaccination and natural reactions to vaccines.
The booklet was produced in association with UNICEF (United National International Children’s Fund), a charity which aims to vaccinate all children in the developing world against the six main childhood disease killers, the sixth being tuberculosis, which had already received widespread coverage in Colombia.
