Infant Mortality and Vaccines
Nathan Corbett, Green College Resident Member
Coach House, Green College, 6201 Cecil Green Park Road, UBC
October 05 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Every year, 10 million children die of preventable causes – many of those being infectious disease. 2.7 million people are infected with human immunodeficiency virus, and hundreds of millions suffer the agony of dysentery and parasite infection. Antibiotics and antivirals are hard to produce and deliver to those who need them, and they are treatments only. Vaccines, on the other hand, offer the possibility of healthy lives and escape from the vicious cycles of poverty and reliance on charity – with strings – from rich nations. Nathan Corbett will present a case for the role of vaccines in global equity, as well as some of his recent research findings from the cutting edge of vaccinology.
