SPOTLIGHT: Investors fund vaccination programs


Japanese investors have snapped up a $223 million bond program to fund vaccination campaigns in developing countries. The idea is that the investors' money will be used to pay for the upfront costs of a campaign and they will be repaid as governments fund the programs. This is the first time that individual investors have bought into a vaccination bond program and it could prove a model for future fundraising efforts in other countries. FierceVaccines
