Seth Q&A

Big Ideas: Gavi CEO Seth Berkley's Q&A, Part II

Ahead of Seth Berkley’s speech to the 2017 graduating class at Johns Hopkins University in Washington, DC on 23 June, Global Health published a two-part Q&A with the Gavi CEO. In this second article, Seth shares his concerns about the expansion of the vaccine hesitancy movement, explains why digital identity technologies in low- and middle-income countries can help improve vaccine coverage, and discusses the value of testing the potentially important malaria vaccine.
