Preventing typhoid can change communities. The primary goal of the Coalition is to define the barriers for the adoption of typhoid vaccines in the communities where they are needed most and the key activities that are needed to overcome them.
The Vaccine Advocacy and Education program at Sabin is dedicated to reducing the burden of preventable diseases by bringing together key stakeholders and leaders in government, private sector and civil society in order to foster cooperation, share information and best practices, and develop improved vaccine policy and access.
