Pneumococcal, a highly infectious disease, kills 1.6 million people– including more than 800,000 children under age five– each year. Sabin supports research and advocacy efforts to raise awareness about this deadly disease and encourage the introduction of pneumococcal vaccines worldwide.
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.
