Ipsos-Reid poll on child health issues to be released
MISSISSAUGA, ON, Nov. 17 /CNW/ - The World Vision clinic, modeled after a typical African community clinic, will stand in sharp contrast to the now-common sight of parents and children receiving the care they need at Canadian H1N1 flu shot clinics.
Dozens of local parents and pre-school children will join Tom Cochrane at the clinic to launch World Vision's Five for 5 campaign. The campaign will address the unacceptable reality that 8.8 million children under five die each year of preventable causes. A national Ipsos-Reid poll on child health issues in Canada and globally will be released and event participants will explore interactive exhibits of the preventable causes of child deaths.
