Vaccines: The Global Health Miracle
"I like to say vaccines are a miracle. Just a few doses of vaccine can protect a child from debilitating and deadly diseases for a lifetime." - Bill Gates, 2011 Annual Letter

"It's absolutely crucial that both governments and the private sector step up efforts to provide life-saving vaccines to children who need them most." - Dr. Margaret Chan, WHO Director-General

Are vaccines the unsung heroes in global health? Why has Bill Gates called this the 'decade of vaccines'?  Why do some parents in wealthy countries resist vaccinating their children, while many parents in poor countries want to vaccinate theirs, but lack access to vaccines?

Join the World Affairs Council and the Washington Global Health Alliance (WGHA) for an exclusive community discussion with a panel of local and global vaccine leaders to learn more about the global efforts to bring life-saving vaccines to the children of the world who need them most. Our panel includes:
* Ms. Helen Evans, Interim CEO, GAVI Alliance
* Dr. Alan Aderem, Director, Seattle BioMed
* Dr. Chris Elias, President and CEO, PATH
* Dr. David Fleming, Director and Health Officer, Public Health  Seattle & King County
