The clinical trial process is lengthy due to a number of factors including regulatory requirements by the FDA. Typically, a new drug spends eight years in clinical trials before becoming available to the public. How long a new drug spends in clinical trials depends on finding enough volunteers for the trial. The average drug today must be tested by 3,700 volunteers before it is approved for use by the FDA.
Given the long, multiphase nature of clinical research, these volunteers are left without the immediate knowledge that they have made a difference. The purpose of the Greater Gift Initiative is to recognize and thank clinical trial volunteers by donating a vaccine to a child in need to honor their participation in a clinical trial.
The Greater Gift Initiative forms partnerships with various industry groups who depend on these volunteers to conduct clinical research. The Greater Gift Initiative gifts vaccines by providing support to highly reputable and established organizations dedicated to childhood vaccine delivery throughout the world.
