Each day, 700 children die from RSV which makes it the second cause of infant mortality worldwide. The RSV GOLD team starts their RSV Mortality Awareness Campaign today with a personal video entitled "Why we should all know about RSV" about Simone van Wyck, a mother who lost her son due to RSV. Will you help them to spread the word? They aim for 100,000 views within 24 hours. You can view the video on www.rsvgold.com/awareness. The campaign will be actively supported by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
