In this Youth in Action Interview, #RisingYouth Alumni Saif speaks with Cha Cha Yang, who founded Students for Herd Immunity, a student-led organization that works to build a life-long understanding of vaccines and increase health literacy through leveraging the benefits of peer-to-peer education. This is especially important considering that Vaccine hesitancy was named one of the greatest health threats by the WHO in 2019. // Dans cette interview de Jeune En Action, Saif, Alumni de #JeunesEnAction, s'entretient avec Cha Cha Yang, qui a fondé Students for Herd Immunity, une organisation dirigée par des étudiants qui s'efforce de faire comprendre les vaccins pour la vie et d'accroître les connaissances en matière de santé en tirant parti des avantages de l'éducation par les pairs.
