THIS INITIATIVE IS A CUTTING-EDGE RESEARCH PROJECT to reduce the immunologic lag and reinforce the development and production of vaccines against poverty-related diseases in the region. The first vaccines, which are in developing process, are leishmaniasis and Chagas diseases.
We also promote the transfer of knowledge and technologies to Mexican Institutes, in order to reach self-sufficiency and sustainability in medium and long terms. Through this vaccination program, Mexico will become a spearhead to contribute in breaking the poverty cycle in Latin America.
