The Global Network for Neglected Tropical Diseases is a program of the Albert B. Sabin Vaccine Institute (Sabin), a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to reducing needless human suffering from vaccine-preventable and neglected tropical diseases (NTDs).
Sabin was founded in 1993 in honor of one of the most influential scientists of the 20th century, Dr. Albert B. Sabin, the developer of the oral live virus polio vaccine. Over time, Sabin has grown into a leading advocacy and scientific organization dedicated to developing lifesaving vaccines and expanding access to existing vaccines and medicines for the poorest people around the world.
Sabin’s three programs — Vaccine Advocacy and Education, Vaccine Development and the Global Network for Neglected Tropical Diseases — deliver cost effective and enduring global health solutions. We develop new vaccines, advocate for the increased use of existing vaccines and promote expanded access to affordable medical treatments to reduce needless human suffering from vaccine-preventable and neglected tropical diseases (NTDs).
The Global Network is governed by the Sabin Vaccine Institute Board of Trustees. Learn more about the Sabin Board of Trustees here.
