Message from CEO
There is a great, unmet need for vaccines that help protect against
infectious disease in both developed and developing countries.
Additionally, there is an opportunity to focus on vaccines that protect
against diseases in categories such as travel. Addressing these needs
was the inspiration for the creation of SaudiVax.
Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), and
Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) markets have a unique
combination of public health needs. These needs, a lack of local
manufacturing, and recent vaccine shortfalls demonstrate a need for a
new Halal compliant solution.
Saudi Arabia has special responsibilities relating to the 11 million
pilgrims that enter the country each year. There are regulations
requiring immunization with vaccines for Meningitis and Yellow Fever
and there are a multitude of public health risks that must be prepared
for and dealt with. In addition, KSA has a relatively high birth rate,
and it is extremely important to have supply security for the specific
vaccine needs neonatal infants.
