Vaccines are an essential public good that governments provide to their citizens. Vaccine costs are rising, often faster than public immunization budgets are expanding. Many countries currently eligible for financial support from Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, are graduating or will soon graduate from this support. These countries must therefore depend on domestic sources to maintain or improve their immunization programs.
Access & Uptake
Despite scientific advances and international support, 1.5 million people still die each year from diseases that could have been prevented by routine immunization. Sabin works with key decision makers and immunization experts at the country and global level to build resilient, sustainable national immunization programs to reach every child.
