Taking a shot at improving access to vaccines

Many children living in resource-challenged countries die from diseases that they could be protected from if they lived in richer countries where vaccines are available. Organizations like the International Vaccine Institute (IVI) of Seoul, South Korea work to ensure that new and improved vaccines are accessible in countries where they are most needed. Now Merck KGaA, Darmstadt Germany, is pitching in to help with this goal by partnering with IVI to develop a more robust, scalable and affordable vaccine manufacturing process.
