Today the Decade of Vaccines (DoV) Collaboration announced that Sabin executive vice president Dr. Ciro de Quadros was appointed to the important leadership position of co-chair of the DoV Steering Committee. In line with Sabin's own mission, the purpose of the DoV is to extend the full benefits of immunization to all people, regardless of where they live.

Members of the Leadership Council, Steering Committee and Working Groups donate their time and expertise to this initiative. Dr. de Quadros has been closely involved with the DoV Collaboration since its outset, as a member of the Steering Committee – the body of experts responsible for developing a global vaccine action plan.

We'd like to extend our congratulations to GAVI Alliance CEO Seth Berkley, who was appointed to the DoV Leadership Council.
