Our mission is to reduce the incidence of infectious diseases that disproportionately affect the underserved and promote the development of globally relevant and accessible vaccines that can be distributed on a not-for-profit basis in the developing world. GAIA Vaccine Foundation activities are centered on four themes: education, prevention, access to care, and vaccination.
Through our active, ongoing collaboration with West African physicians and support for prevention-related clinical activities in the region, we work to improve the health of Malian children and their parents while setting the stage for ethical vaccine trials. Through educational programs, conferences, press, and other media campaigns, GAIA VF strives to educate the public and, in particular, healthcare providers about HIV/AIDS and the need for a global HIV vaccine. GAIA VF focuses on educating people about community and individuals’ roles in advancing accessible health care for all.
