Webinar: Rapid response, low-cost manufacturing of viral vaccines against emerging infectious disease threats РBatavia

June 29, 2023
Zoom

Date 
June 29th

Time TBC 

Description 
Vaccine inequality & low public acceptance inhibit vaccine uptake and limit coverage. Approximately 25m children under 1 year of age did not receive basic vaccines (highest since 2009). Global vaccine coverage dropped during COVID pandemic to 81%, and only 29% of population in developing countries were vaccinated against Covid. Our HIP-Vax platform can help solve these issues by shortening the time to the clinic and greatly reducing vaccine manufacturing costs. Our HIP-Vax platform helps make vaccines more affordable and allows for more equitable access.
