Independent Research Requires Independent Funding
For vaccines to achieve their potential, independent research is needed to help make them more trustworthy. Independent research requires independent funding.
Imagine that you have the power to eliminate deadly diseases from the planet. Imagine the satisfaction of having supported the movement that made polio, yellow fever, a thing of the past.
This is your chance. Right now we are at a crucial turning point. We have the power to do something we have never had before.
But without better safety testing and accurate communication of risks the elimination of disease with vaccines will remain a dream. Fear of adverse effects will keep people from using vaccines and will keep these deadly viruses alive.
The only way to overcome the fear that threatens to undermine vaccine implementation is good information. That is, unbiased, independent, scientifically well founded information.
Brighton is a critical part of this movement. We are the world's largest network of vaccine safety experts. Our aim is to develop the science needed to inform health authorities to confidently make the best possible decisions regarding vaccines. We must be independently funded and thus depend on public health research grants and donations such as yours.
