The Sabin Vaccine Institute is a leading advocate for expanding vaccine access and uptake globally, advancing vaccine research and development, and amplifying vaccine knowledge and innovation.

Unlocking the potential of vaccines through partnership, Sabin has built a robust ecosystem of funders, innovators, implementers, practitioners, policy makers and public stakeholders to advance its vision of a future free from preventable diseases.

As a non-profit with more than two decades of experience, Sabin is committed to finding solutions that last and extending the full benefits of immunization to all people, regardless of who they are or where they live.

Lasting solutions cannot be imposed; they must be built. That is why we are dedicated to the development of country-driven, evidence-based responses to the world’s leading health problems.

We carry on the legacy of Dr. Albert B. Sabin, best known for his creation of the oral polio vaccine in the 1950s, which was used in the global effort to eradicate polio. His vaccine saved countless millions around the world from death and disability, thanks to Dr. Sabin’s tireless commitment to ensure that every child was protected from preventable disease. This dedication to reach every child with life-saving vaccines continues to inspire our work today.

At Sabin, we believe in the power of vaccines to change the world.
