Center for Vaccine Ethics and Policy (CVEP)
Statement of Independence

February 2011

The Center for Vaccine Ethics and Policy (CVEP) is a joint program of the Center for Bioethics, University of Pennsylvania; The Wistar Institute Vaccine Center, and the Vaccine Education Center of the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.

CVEP’S work in vaccine ethics and policy depends on financial support from a range of sources, including NGOs, academic institutions, governments, the vaccine industry, other commercial organizations, foundations and individuals. We depend on significant in-kind support from our governing organizations, each a not-for-profit entity.

We strive to balance and diversify the sources of support we accept in pursuing project work, convening symposiums and meetings, and conducting research. We are committed to transparency in acknowledging the sources of support for work we undertake.

Regardless of the source, form or scale of support we receive, we do not accept and will not operate under any conditions which interfere with our independence in designing and conducting our work, or in publishing and disseminating our findings.
