In 2014, the Sabin Vaccine Institute began working with Georgia’s national government and partners to promote sustainable immunization financing and domestic resource mobilization for immunization. In more recent years, the focus has shifted to improving government immunization policy.

Typhoid is a common illness across much of Southeast Asia, where the bacterial disease spreads through contaminated food and water.

For 25 years, Sabin has been a trusted partner, working with countries, the World Health Organization (WHO), Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and regional stakeholders to improve immunization.

On April 23, 2018, 43 parliamentarians, joined by government officials and partners, gathered in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo, for a briefing on sustainable immunization financing.

The success of immunization programs relies heavily on immunization program managers, who facilitate every aspect of immunization programs, from cost-effective procurement of vaccines to the vigilant monitoring of vaccine safety and efficacy.

Disease surveillance studies are an important tool for determining the burden of a disease. By knowing how many people are impacted by a disease – and just as importantly, knowing where and at what age people are most effected – decision-makers can create informed and targeted health policy.

Last night, more than one hundred guests joined together to honor Dr. Paul Offit as the recipient of the 2018 Sabin Gold Medal. Colleagues, family, friends and peers gathered at the National Academy of Sciences building in Washington, D.C., to celebrate Dr. Offit’s contributions to immunization, including his achievements as the co-inventor of an oral rotavirus vaccine and his leadership as a vocal and dedicated advocate for immunization.
