Global Immunization Goals

The AAP understands the importance of global immunizations and is dedicated to the health of all children, no matter where they are born.  The Academy's work on global immunizations fosters partnerships which support global immunization initiatives and provides resources to help pediatricians and other child health clinicians be effective global vaccine advocates. The AAP also works to promote effective advocacy strategies among pediatric leaders in both developed and developing countries.

To accomplish these goals, the Academy works closely with a network of Chapter global immunization champions, other section and chapter advocates, and external partners.

AAP global immunization activities are supported by grants from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the United Nations Foundation.
