Interview with Teresa Aguado: The Value of Vaccines
Dr. Teresa Aguado of ISGlobal discusses the Decade of Vaccines Collaboration, whose secretariat was jointly coordinated by Sabin.
I think this is one of the best things that can happen—that different "partners" find common ground and work together to achieve beneficial goals without having to sacrifice their independence or mode of action. The Decade of Vaccines Collaboration and its Global Vaccine Action Plan (GVAP) have established a series of objectives and produced a roadmap for the next decade. To a great extent, this document gives the deciding voice—and the responsibility—to the countries themselves, since they are ultimately the decision-makers for implementing any measures that are adopted.
