For more than 10 years GSK has given an unrestricted education grant to Network for Education and Support in Immunisation (NESI) whose mission is to provide education, training and support in immunisation, to improve the quality and sustainability of immunisation programmes and services in low- and middle-income countries and to ensure better health for infants and children.
NESI has become a key partner of organizations such as the WHO, UNICEF and GAVI who implement vaccination programs in these regions.
GSK also continues to support global public health training through the TropED network. TropED encompasses approximately 20 European universities and their institutional partners across the globe. Since its creation in 2000, over 100 participants from across the world have attended the training course annually. In 2013 representatives from GSK lectured at TropEd’s Advanced Vaccinology course in Berlin for 16 students from both high-income and low-and-middle-income countries.
