Supporting the Global Vaccine Action Plan

Vaccination is among the greatest public health achievements of the 20th century, banishing feared diseases from the lives of those fortunate enough to be immunized. But 1.5 million children continue to die each year from vaccine-preventable diseases.

The Global Vaccine Action Plan

The Global Vaccine Action Plan (GVAP) is a framework to end that inequity and extend the benefits of vaccination to everyone, regardless of where they are born.

Rotavirus is the most common cause of diarrhea, one of the world’s leading killers of children.

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.
As part of his role as ROTA Council co-chair, Dr. Ciro de Quadros recently wrote an opinion piece for AllAfrica.com about a new study showing that rotavirus vaccines will have a powerful public health impact in developing countries.
