Research & Reports

Global Immunization Division Research Program 2016-2013

Beginning in fiscal year 2011, the Global Immunization Division established a competitive “request for proposals” to support vaccine research projects that address vaccine-preventable disease elimination or eradication. ¬The main goals of this initiative include building a stronger research program and establishing new or strengthening current collaborations with international research partners.

 

This report provides a summary of accomplishments from the first three years of this research initiative in the context of the Global Vaccine Action Plan recommended action(s) and a listing of the countries and partnerships funded in research projects.
