3 Why Target Measles? 3

4 We Care. We Serve. We Accomplish. Why Target Measles? 1.In 2000, about 45.5% of vaccine preventable deaths among children were caused by measles 2.Serious side effects cause potentially life-long adverse health conditions for 30% of children who contract the disease 3.Measles infection has a significant impact on families, e.g. childcare, hospitalization, loss of work, etc. 4.Primary health care and routine immunization strengthened by investment in measles vaccination campaigns. 5.Eradication is within reach 6.450 children still die each day from measles complications 4

5 Success to Date Measles related deaths have decreased by 78%! More than 1 billion children have been vaccinated! More than 5 million deaths have been prevented! Global routine measles immunization has increased from 71% to 82%! Since 2001 and the establishment of the Measles Initiative: 5

6 Why Target Measles? Measles is still the most contagious vaccine preventable disease: 2011 Outbreaks 6

7 Why Target Measles? Recent headlines illustrate how measles can be imported and spread even in areas where indigenous measles has been eliminated. In addition, infection can spread from unvaccinated people in developed countries who travel to areas where the impact of an outbreak creates dire consequences for the neediest in those communities.

8 Lions: Measles Initiative Champions 8

9 We Care. We Serve. We Accomplish. The Measles Initiative Since 2001, this partnership of international organizations has been committed to reducing measles deaths worldwide through mass vaccination campaigns and by strengthening routine immunization. US$750 million has been invested to date. 9 The Measles Initiative is one of the greatest success stories in public health – a child’s life can be saved for less than US$1! Measles immunization carries the highest health return for the money spent, saving more lives per unit cost Measles vaccinations provide lifelong immunity

10 Anne Ray Charitable Trust Measles Initiative Partners * * LCIF is the only service club organization among the partners 10

11 Lions Growing Commitment In 2010, the Gates Foundation provided LCIF with a grant of US$400,000. Lions matched these funds with US$300,000, for a total of US$700,000 A portion of these funds were awarded to Lions in four pilot countries: Ethiopia, Madagascar, Mali and Nigeria This funding was used for several key areas of activity in each country: o Advocacy o Campaign Planning o Promotion and social mobilization 11

12 Lions Growing Commitment Lions in each country participated in local, regional and national level planning and implementation. They: Formed coordination committees and opened offices dedicated to Measles Initiative activities Met with WHO and local public health representatives to identify gaps in campaign plans Strategized solutions to fill gaps and ensured that the most vulnerable people were reached 12

13 Lions Growing Commitment One critical component of any mass vaccination campaign is ensuring that families participate and have their children vaccinated. Lions played a key role in getting the word out and bringing families in during the days of the campaigns through: 13 TV and radio ads Posting and distributing fliers Mobile PA messages in targeted neighborhoods Creating and distributing promotional items (e.g. T-shirts)

14 Lions Growing Commitment As a result, more than 41 million children were vaccinated in the four pilot countries! Also, healthcare infrastructure improvements included: Health workers trained Vaccine storage improved Safe injection practices promoted Surveillance systems implemented 14

15 Lions Growing Commitment Measles Initiative Feasibility Study Nearly 150 Personal Interviews with Lions Leaders, as well as 1,500 survey respondents 88% approved of expanding Lions’ involvement with the Measles Initiative 82% were confident that Lions could mobilize $10 - $15 million in support of measles control 90% said that they would support a measles campaign with a personal gift 15

16 One Shot, One Life US$5 million Challenge Grant awarded to LCIF in October 2011 -for every US$2 raised by Lions, Gates will match with US$1 Deepening the relationship with Gates started last year (more on Measles pilot projects above) Lions chosen because of: global reach commitment to improving health in their communities serving the underserved proven track record to change lives for those in greatest need 16

17 One Shot, One Life Goal: Vaccinate 157 million children in 2012 together with our Measles Initiative partners. How will this be achieved? Raise and provide US$10 Million for the Measles Initiative Combine with US$5 Million matching challenge grant from Gates Foundation Mobilize and educate community members in measles priority countries about the importance of vaccinations Advocate for investment in routine immunization programs at the highest levels 17

30 Promotion and Fundraising One Shot, One Life is the LCIF priority for the remainder of the 2011- 2012 fiscal year. Tell Lions about: Our global leadership role in the Measles Initiative Our deepening relationship with the Gates Foundation The importance of supporting measles control globally How many lives are saved and how health care is improved, especially for children How important each Lion’s contribution to One Shot, One Life is today. 30

31 Promotional Packets Packets with the following One Shot, One Life materials are being mailed to Multiple District Coordinators who will forward supplies to District Coordinators: Meeting the Challenge brochure Pocket fact cards Lapel pins Promotional brochures Celebrating our Pilot Year DVD 31

32 Four Steps To Success Step 1 – Educate Yourself Review this presentation and browse the LCIF and Measles Initiative websites for more information; when questions come up, contact LCIF staff for assistance Step 2 – Prioritize Your Time Work with LCIF donation reports and district governor team input to prioritize club visits Step 3 – Promote, Publicize, Present Club visits, district events, local newsletters and press, email lists, letter to clubs Step 4 – Make the Request Use every opportunity to directly ask Lions to contribute to One Shot, One Life 32

33 Set a Goal to Guide Your Outreach 33 Consider setting a goal based on $10 (or even $30!) per member in your district. Then ask yourself: 1. Will these funds be in addition to your original district goal? 2. Do you plan to direct some clubs or donors to make their regular annual gift to One Shot, One Life? 3. Will you try some combination of the above? What you decide will determine your One Shot, One Life outreach strategy. For example: 1.If looking for “new” funds, ask the top LCIF supporting clubs in your district to hold a special event or collection to raise funds to combat measles, the “quiet disaster.” Let them know about the banner patches available. 2.If you know of several clubs that give one or more MJFs each year, ask a portion of them to designate this year’s MJFs to measles.

34 Recognition Programs At an LCIF Steering Committee meeting on January 28, these recognition programs were recommended for clubs and major gifts: 34  Club Banner Patches US$50 per member US$100 per member US$250 per member  US$100 per member and higher clubs listed on donor wall at International Convention  US$10,000+ individuals and clubs listed on LCIF Web site and at International Convention
