IVI and Sabin Vaccine Institute Form a Strategic Alliance to Develop Vaccines for the World’s Poor

 

Seoul, July 18, 2012— The International Vaccine Institute (IVI) and the Sabin Vaccine Institute (Sabin) signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to form a strategic alliance around research, development and advocacy among other stipulations at IVI headquarters on July 17th.

 

IVI and Sabin have been at the forefront in efforts to achieve common goals around supporting public health of the world’s poorest people through vaccines. The two organizations undertake research, development and promotion activities for new vaccines particularly for neglected diseases; advocate for global access to vaccines; and forge and maintain strong ties to international agencies.

 

This strategic alliance will allow both organizations to benefit by complementing their current capabilities, such as focused disease areas and networks. In addition, the two organizations will collaborate to leverage their presence in different geographical regions, IVI in Asia and Africa and Sabin in the U.S. and Latin America.

“I am thrilled to be signing this agreement with Sabin,” said Dr. Christian Loucq, Director-General of IVI “Sabin shares common values with IVI and we look forward to seeking means to promote effective and efficient ways to advocate vaccine development in, and introduction to, developing countries.”

 

IVI and Sabin have agreed on the following through this MOU: 1) Mutual introduction for product development programs; 2) Joint grant applications for development projects; 3) Joint grant applications for advocacy; 4) Establishment of offices in respective headquarters upon request; 5) Provision of policy presence and education of respective governmental entities where each organization has a strong presence; 6) Collaboration on fundraising; 7) Sharing of resources and personnel in the areas of regulatory affairs and submissions, quality assurance, and contract resource organization inputs.

 

“The strategic alliance between Sabin and IVI will allow our two organizations to strengthen the core activities that are required to build out a pipeline of vaccines for the world’s poorest communities,” said Michael W. Marine, Chief Executive Officer at Sabin. “We look forward to collaborating with IVI on fundamental organizational priorities, including fundraising and advocacy efforts.”
