The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the Sabin Vaccine Institute Partner to Improve Vaccine Access by Strengthening Immunization Programs

WASHINGTON, DC - With the mutual goal of improving access to life-saving vaccines, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation recommitted its support to the Sabin Vaccine Institute (Sabin) to relaunch a global network for immunization managers.

The success of immunization programs relies heavily on immunization program managers, who facilitate every aspect of immunization programs, from cost-effective procurement of vaccines to the vigilant monitoring of vaccine safety and efficacy.

In the last five years, Europe has experienced outbreaks and increased incidence of vaccine-preventable diseases, notably measles, across the region.

Sabin’s IAIM Network is the largest international network of immunization managers, offering opportunities to connect, share knowledge and strengthen skills required to effectively implement immunization programs.
