Infectious diseases are the leading cause of death of under-fives globally and are responsible for nearly half of all child deaths annually. Immunisation against these illnesses is one of the most effective means of preventing their spread and severity.

To keep populations healthy and save lives, we believe it is crucial that the global community continues to support and invest in vaccine development.
