- To support a clinical trial of hecolin, a vaccine against Hepatitis E, in pregnant women
Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $4,000,000 to the International Vaccine Institute (IVI) to support their work on a clinical trial of hecolin, a vaccine against Hepatitis E, in pregnant women. Hecolin is currently approved for use in some countries, but the World Health Organization has not yet recommended it for routine use in general populations because its safety in pregnant women has not been proven.
