Thank you Dr Robert Steinglass for sharing these presentations and films with the forum. Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), the Drugs for Neglected Diseases initiative (DNDi) and Mount Sinai School of Medicine's Global Health Program conducted a conference titled "Lives in the Balance: Delivering Medical Innovations to Neglected Patients and Populations" conference from December 13-14, 2012. There were more than 500 registered participants, including key actors in global health and R&D personnel from more than 20 countries, who took stock of the efforts to stimulate needs-driven R&D and participated in lively discussions about how to confront the challenges we face today. The conference website has been updated to include videos from each panel, the PowerPoint presentations delivered over the two days, as well as the Fatal Neglect films that people can use to highlight the conference themes at a variety of fora: http://www.doctorswithoutborders.org/events/symposiums/2012-lives-in-the-balance/ The focused vaccine session at the conference was moderated by Robert Steinglass, Immunization Senior Advisor, JSI The short presentations setting the stage were by: Samba Ousmane Sow, MD, Center for Vaccine Development-Mali (CVD-Mali) - A case study on using TT-Uniject in Mali Rebecca Grais, PhD , Epicentre - Optimizing vaccinations in emergencies - what products are needed The panel discussion members were: Fred Were, MD, Chairman of the Kenya Pediatric Association F.
