Knowledge & Innovation
From September 7-9, 2016, 350 experts from 50 countries met in Melbourne, Australia, for the 12th International Rotavirus Symposium to share recent scientific data on rotavirus (RV) epidemiology and immunology, the current status of the licensed RV vaccines, and data on the impact of the introduction of RV vaccines in several countries. The 12th International Rotavirus Symposium was convened by the Sabin Vaccine Institute in collaboration with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the U.S.
Immunization managers facilitate every aspect of immunization programs, from cost-effective procurement of vaccines to the vigilant monitoring of vaccine safety and efficacy. Since 2013, Sabin has helped advance global vaccination efforts by bringing together immunization managers from more than 100 countries to share the latest information and build essential skills to strengthen immunization programs around the world.
Over the last 200 years, vaccines have proven to be one of the most effective ways to prevent and control disease. They have tremendous potential to save lives, but only if immunization rates remains high.
