If Ukrainian children are not vaccinated, Ukraine will face a measles epidemic.
"WHO informed us that next year we will have measles if we do not vaccinate our children. Today Ukraine has the lowest immunization rates in the whole world, including Africa. This is a big problem. Previously, there had been no vaccine, but now we have brought good, high-quality vaccines from UNICEF and UNDP to Ukraine," Suprun said.
