For more than 140 years, GSK has pioneered novel research methods and technologies to help protect people from infectious diseases. Our vaccines portfolio of more than 20 marketed vaccines is the broadest in the industry, helping to protect people throughout their lives. We believe prevention, at scale and for impact, is the best health investment for society, patients, and the economy. Vaccine-preventable diseases are a significant burden on society and healthcare systems; approximately $1 trillion in productivity is lost each year due to preventable conditions. This includes the impact from the 330,000 older adults hospitalized globally each year with RSV, the approximately 1 in 3 people who will develop shingles in their lifetime and the 3-11% of people infected with seasonal influenza each year. Our Vaccines portfolio will reach over 1 billion people globally this decade.
