PATH's Vaccine Resource Library features essential resources on vaccines and immunization.
PATH takes the guesswork out of hunting for reliable immunization information
The World Wide Web can be a valuable source for information on just about any topic. But with the wealth of information the Internet provides also comes the headache of sorting through countless websites to find the most credible resources.
For health professionals, policymakers, and parents
PATH’s Vaccine Resource Library tracks down the web’s leading information on global immunization issues and the vaccine-preventable diseases we target. The library is a comprehensive listing of high-quality, scientifically accurate documents for many different audiences. Pooling resources from the World Health Organization, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, UNICEF, and PATH, as well as sources including scientific journals, we’ve created a user-friendly site that makes it easy to find what you’re looking for.The Vaccine Resource Library expands upon activities begun through the PATH Children’s Vaccine Program (CVP), one of the world’s premier initiatives aimed at increasing access to high-quality immunization services. On top of its innovative approaches to immunization delivery in some of the world’s poorest communities, CVP also corralled comprehensive immunization resources on its website for easy online access.
