A young woman in Laos walks away after immunisation against measles and rubella at Kang village school in Pakse District, southern Laos, during an immunisation campaign in November 2011. Campaigns with the measles rubella vaccine also target young women approaching child bearing age, because rubella infection in pregnant women can cause severe birth disorders in newborns such as heart disease, blindness, and deafness.
