The case of the English physician and surgeon Edward Jenner (1749-1823) is one of perseverance and method, but also of an audacity that today would have put him behind bars. Contrary to what is sometimes presented, the idea of vaccinations did not arise as a “eureka” moment. In Jenner’s epoch, variolation, or inoculation, was practiced using smallpox scabs or pus in healthy people to protect them from what was then a terrible plague.

The first ever vaccine was created when Edward Jenner, an English physician and scientist, successfully injected small amounts of a cowpox virus into a young boy to protect him from the related (and deadly) smallpox virus. But how does this seemingly counterintuitive process work? Kelwalin Dhanasarnsombut details the science behind vaccines.

One hundred sixty years after the invention of the needle and syringe, we're still using them to deliver vaccines; it's time to evolve. Biomedical engineer Mark Kendall demos the Nanopatch, a one-centimeter-by-one-centimeter square vaccine that can be applied painlessly to the skin. He shows how this tiny piece of silicon can overcome four major shortcomings of the modern needle and syringe, at a fraction of the cost.

More than 75 countries have introduced rotavirus vaccines in less than 10 years – the fastest scale up of a child vaccine ever. Children who are vaccinated are 50-94% less likely to be hospitalized for severe rotavirus diarrhea, but the vaccines aren’t reaching all children. Rotavirus is still responsible for hundreds of thousands of deaths per year. Help us share this story so we can protect all children from rotavirus.

It was 1952, and polio gripped the world in fear. There was no known cause, no cure and no help in sight for parents desperate to protect their children. Across the ocean, eager to beat the potentially fatal condition, polio-afflicted President Roosevelt inspired the American public to send in their dimes to fund research.

In just a few years Joseph Salk, an ambitious 33-year-old scientist working from his basement lab in Pittsburgh, would bring infantile paralysis to its knees and change the course of medical history. World-renowned experts and survivors tell the extraordinary story of how Dr Salk and the legendary 'march of dimes' came together to help conquer polio.

Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is doing all it can to fight the Ebola outbreak in Monrovia, Liberia, including rapid scaling up of its facilities in order to treat the growing number of patients. The health care system is overwhelmed in Monrovia - some health workers have died and some have fled. Medical facilities are far too overstretched and people are suffering from a lack of health care, not just for Ebola, but also for all other medical needs.

One of the greatest privileges of working in global health is the chance to see the impact that advances like vaccines can have in people's lives. It doesn't always come easily. Developing a new drug or vaccine can take many years, involve many setbacks, and require close collaboration with many partners. But when it works, it's glorious.

A movie, produced for the 10th year anniversary of the introduction of vaccine vial monitors (VVM). FIVE SENSES focuses on how this simple tool expands the horizon of the immunization programme and empowers health workers serving people at the very periphery of the health system. The theme and the goal are specific but there are scenes, human conditions, different livings for everybody to see and think about them. Shot in Niger, Vietnam and Indonesia in 2007.

With a lifesaving malaria vaccine on the horizon, policymakers will need vital information from researchers to plan for its introduction, but all too frequently a gap in communication between the two results in slow decision-making. The PATH Malaria Vaccine Initiative (MVI) helps to bridge the worlds of science and policymaking by developing a cadre of malaria vaccine advocates.  MVI's Malaria Vaccine Advocacy Fellowship trains researchers to be "policy champions" who will help to ensure that when it becomes available, a vaccine will reach the people who need it the most.
