At the Sabin Vaccine Institute, we’re firm believers in the powerful role that vaccines and immunizations play in reducing needless suffering from infectious and neglected tropical diseases. Our convictions were confirmed in the World Health Organization (WHO), UNICEF, and World Bank’s “State of the World’s Vaccines and Immunizations” report released last month which affirmed the link between immunization and reducing poverty and mortality; improving general welfare and future productivity; preventing debilitating illness and disability; and achieving several Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), in particular, reducing deaths of children under the age of five.
