Gates Foundation and Mayo Clinic Experts to Address Vaccine Research in the 21st Century

The Global Vaccine Action Plan (GVAP) focuses on making vaccines accessible in the developing world, and supporting vaccine research and development. “All children and their parents should have the same opportunity to receive life-saving vaccines regardless of where they may live,” said Dr. Heaton.
