Organizations : International
  • The Children's Vaccine Program at PATH is the renamed Bill and Melinda Gates Children's Vaccine Program, announced December 2, 1998, a $100,000,000 program aimed at significantly reducing the time it takes for vaccines to reach children living in poor countries. More than two million children die each year from diseases that these vaccines could prevent.
  • Children's Vaccine Initiative (CVI) serves as a global think tank for vaccines and immunization, aiming to improve the world supply and the quality of vaccines and to make them affordable for use in developing countries.
  • The Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization (GAVI) is a partnership dedicated to ensuring that all children, however poor, have equal access to existing vaccines. Currently, almost three million lives worldwide are lost to diseases that are preventable with such vaccines.
  • The International AIDS Vaccine Initiative (IAVI) program to speed up AIDS vaccine development worldwide is described in detail on a special Science page. The goal is to identify an AIDS vaccine as soon as possible, based on the belief of most scientists that vaccines represent the only long-term solution to the AIDS problem. IAVI declares itself prepared to implement a very aggressive action plan, while more established organizations stick to traditional research avenues.
  • International Conference on Harmonisation (ICH) of Technical Requirements for Registration of Pharmaceuticals for Human Use brings together regulatory authorities from Europe, Japan and the United States to discuss scientific and technical aspects of product registration.
  • International Society of Travel Medicine (ISTM) is the largest professional group in the world devoted to safe and healthy travel. Its 1,200 members in 53 countries include doctors, nurses and public health professionals from academia, government and the private sector.
  • International Vaccine Institute (IVI), headquartered in Seoul, South Korea, is dedicated to bringing new vaccines to developing countries through research, development and capacity building.
  • UNAIDS, the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS, is the official source of international information about the disease. Sponsored by UNICEF, UNDP (United Nations Development Programme), UNFPA (United Nations Population Fund), UNESCO, WHO and the World Bank, the website carries links to the AIDS pages of each.
