    I'm very proud to serve as Gavi CEO and put my experience in world vaccine development to work on a much broader range of diseases impacting developing countries.

    Saving antibiotics so that antibiotics can save lives

    Ever since antibiotics were first developed and heralded as a miracle of modern medicine more than half a century ago, experts have warned of the dangers of their misuse. By exposing bugs to just enough medicine to encourage resistance, the fear was that we would end up encouraging germs to evade the very drugs that were designed to counter their impact.
