Ermera, Timor-Leste. “I had to leave my work and walk for an hour to receive the TT vaccination during the health ministry’s campaigns. But I know it has protected my children from tetanus. I am happy I took the vaccine,” said Joana as she tried hard to remember the dates of vaccination.

“Unfortunately, I have misplaced the LISIO (Immunisation card),” Joana continued.
