Vaccines Linked to Higher Education for Girls
GIRLS CARE FOR SICK SIBLINGS
Improving child vaccine rates could improve school attendance in developing countries.
Adolescent girls in low income nations are less likely to go to school than boys, especially if they are caring for siblings who are sick.
But, a new Standford University Study estimates boosting vaccination rates could significantly narrow the gender gap.
Researchers say girls would have more opportunities to get an education which has also been shown to reduce the risk of hiv and teen pregnancy.
