JOIN HANDS say YES to Pneumococcal Prevention

22 April 2014

Dear MPA Member,

On behalf of Parenting2u (P2U), Malaysian Paediatric Association (MPA) and the Asian Strategic Alliance for Preumococcal Disease Prevention, (ASAP), I thank you for participating in the YES to PnD Protection campaign. With our collective effort, we hope and trust that it will not be long before all Malaysian children get to enjoy protection against pneumococcal disease via the National Immunisation Programme.
Enclosed is a report of the campaign proceedings from April 2013 – April 2014 for your kind reference. The campaign has achieved a wider scope than we expected and we thank everyone who has played a part in this historic display of people power. 
This year, we welcome the Australian-based Confederation of Meningitis Associations (COMO) to conduct a joint campaign called JOIN HANDS say YES to Pneumococcal Prevention. The campaign is a marriage between COMO’s global Join Hands Against Meningitis campaign, carried out throughout 48 member associations in 28 countries, and Malaysia’s very own YES to PnD Protection conducted in more than 100 locations across 12 states. 
Please find enclosed 5 hand posters which will be used to raise awareness of meningitis and pneumococcal disease. You are encouraged to display the hand posters in prime locations to help raise awareness of our cause. Please note the posters will be available soon!
Thank you once again and we trust that you will continue to support us in our journey to provide a better future for the children of tomorrow!
It could be a selfie, a group shot with your clinic personnel, your patients, your children, your children’s friends, your favourite people...Just snap some creative shots with the JOIN HANDS SAY YES TO PNEUMOCOCCAL PROTECTION hand posters to win exclusive campaign memorabilia! Send all photos to with subject title: Join Hands Competition. Contest ends on 15 May 2014.
