Summary

The Children's Vaccine Initiative--an alliance of United Nations agencies, private foundations, and industry set up in 1990 to improve vaccination programs for the poorest children in the world--is being disbanded after eight troubled years. No announcement about its future has yet been made, but Science has learned that it will be replaced later this year with a new structure for promoting cooperation between public and private sector groups in the international vaccine community, the details of which have not yet been worked out.
