The Serum Institute Of India
Serum Institute is an impressive company that was founded by Dr. Cyrus Poonawalla and his brother in 1966 to manufacture low-cost vaccines for Indian use. Today their company makes more vaccines than any other manufacturer and delivers them to 140 countries around the world. And the great thing is their products are very high quality so they’ve really been able to fill a huge need for affordable vaccines. It was an honor to meet with Dr. Poonawalla during my visit to India. Serum’s contribution to global health has just been amazing.
