WASHINGTON, D.C. — In response to the harmful and impulsive decision to withdraw funds from the World Health Organization (WHO), the Sabin Vaccine Institute (Sabin) joins the Center for Health and Gender Equity (CHANGE) and more than 65 other non-governmental organizations and global health institutions in an official letter of solidarity to WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus and WHO staff worldwide.
WASHINGTON D.C. – Amid the evolving global challenges posed by the novel coronavirus pandemic, immunization professionals must now grapple with deploying routine immunization services in a daunting and ever-shifting landscape. To strengthen immunization professionals’ ability to navigate the complex challenges of their work, Sabin launched the Boost Community (Boost), a global network dedicated to serving immunization professionals, supported by a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
In our strongest and most unified voice, the Sabin Vaccine Institute condemns racism. Dr. Albert Sabin was a great scientist, and importantly his work led him to fight for equality so that all children everywhere – regardless of race, religion, nationality, gender or socioeconomic status – received his lifesaving polio vaccine.
