About the International Vaccine Institute (IVI)

The International Vaccine Institute (IVI) is a non-profit international organization established in 1997 at the initiative of the United Nations Development Programme to make new and improved vaccines accessible to low- and middle-income countries.

With a mission to discover, develop, and deliver safe, effective, and affordable vaccines for global health, IVI works with other product development partners to take innovative vaccine technology from need to impact. IVI developed the world’s first low-cost oral cholera vaccine, manufactured by three different companies and pre-qualified by the World Health Organization (WHO), and developed a new-generation typhoid conjugate vaccine that is currently under assessment for WHO PQ.

IVI’s portfolio includes vaccines at all stages of pre-clinical and clinical development for diseases of global health importance such as cholera, typhoid, chikungunya, shigella, salmonella, schistosomiasis, Hepatitis E, HPV, and COVID-19.

IVI is headquartered in Seoul, Republic of Korea with a European Regional Office in Sweden and Collaborating Centers in Ghana, Ethiopia, and Madagascar. 39 countries and the WHO are members of IVI, and the governments of the Republic of Korea, Sweden, India, and Finland provide state funding.
