Every person who wants a vaccine deserves to get one. We strengthen health care systems to address vaccine inequities and barriers so that all people can enjoy the benefits of immunization.
Accurate, compelling vaccine information and reporting are key to combating misinformation and disinformation from the ground up. Our partnerships equip health workers and journalists to effectively communicate about vaccines.
We build communities and develop resource-rich platforms for immunization professionals on the front lines of community health care. Our tools, trainings and connections are designed to empower them to grow and lead.
Effective, equitable vaccine roll outs are guided by policy grounded in evidence. We provide policy makers with the latest data-driven research to make informed decisions.
Our research & development seeks to advance vaccines for some of the world’s deadliest diseases. Our collaborations with science and technology experts aim to rethink prevention of future pandemics.

Using Social Media to Boost Vaccine Acceptance
We partnered with the International Vaccine Access Center at Johns Hopkins University to investigate how social media impacts vaccine knowledge, attitudes and behaviors. Together, we developed a review of existing research that identified initial insights and gaps in this nascent field of study. Ongoing work includes the creation of indicators to measure vaccine hesitancy on social media and a framework for using digital tools to increase vaccine acceptance in low- and middle-income countries.
Elevating Local Data for Global Decision Making
In 2014, we began studying the impact of typhoid on communities in affected areas of Bangladesh, Pakistan and Nepal through partnerships with local hospitals, laboratories, researchers and health officials. Our landmark Surveillance for Enteric Fever in Asia Project has since contributed to the WHO and Gavi decisions around new typhoid conjugate vaccine use. It continues to inform country-level policies to curb typhoid’s spread.
Leveraging Lessons From COVID-19 for Vaccine R&D
The record-breaking response of the scientific community in developing COVID-19 vaccines demonstrates the power of cooperation, government commitment and regulatory flexibility. The Sabin-Aspen Vaccine Science & Policy Group explored real-time lessons from this work and the vaccine ecosystem. Their report shares five “Big Ideas” to rethink the development of vaccines to help prevent future pandemics and check ongoing disease threats like malaria, TB and HIV.
We are always on the lookout for new, strategic partnerships with academic and scientific institutions, funders and coalitions which share our commitment to increasing vaccine access, uptake and innovation.
Help us improve lives through immunization.
We make vaccines more accessible, enable innovation and expand immunization across the globe.
