‘The Government of the Maldives’, says UNICEF consultant Gerard van Mourik, ‘is playing with fire’.  Van Mourik is working with the Ministry of Health & Family and helps drafting their communications strategy for the introduction of the pentavalent vaccine. The vaccine is already used in over 70 countries around the World and now about to be included in the country’s national immunization program. Pentavalent is also called ‘easy5’ as it combines 5 vaccines in one vaccine and protects against diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus, hepatitis b and Hib.
