Sabin is happy to announce the arrival of our 2012 Annual Report, featuring highlights from our three programs – Vaccine Advocacy and Education, The Sabin Product Development Partnership, and the Global Network for Neglected Tropical Diseases.

Special Projects

 
Sabin works with partners around the world, including the World Health Organization (WHO), the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), Fundação Oswaldo Cruz (FIOCRUZ) and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, to convene symposiums that have brought together more than 2,400 of the world’s global health stakeholders to work on advancing vaccination as a cost-effective weapon in public health.
 
Sabin is dedicated to reducing the burden and impact of infectious diseases through the use of new and underutilized vaccines.

Meningococcal Disease

The onset of meningitis can occur suddenly and progress rapidly, with the potential to become fatal within a matter of hours. Survivors can be left with debilitating neurological side effects ranging from speech disorders to mental retardation and paralysis.

Since 2011, Sabin has worked to improve meningococcal disease estimates, focusing on Latin America. Through regional symposia, research and advocacy, Sabin provides a broader base of knowledge on which to build future initiatives, while bringing together key stakeholders to better understand and fight meningococcal disease.
