The Foundation

ReSViNET Foundation is the international leading non-profit organisation committed to reducing the global burdens of RSV infection.

RSV acute lower respiratory infection (ALRI) is one of our most significant global healthcare challenges, not only in infants, but also in older adults. It is estimated that globally in 2019, there were 33·0 million RSV-associated acute lower respiratory infection episodes, 3·6 million RSV-associated acute lower respiratory infection hospital admissions, 26300 RSV-associated acute lower respiratory infection in-hospital deaths, and 101 400 RSV-attributable overall deaths (84 500–125 200) in children aged 0–60 months. 

After 4 years of building and shaping the network and months of preparation, the ReSViNET Foundation has officially been founded 2018. Since February 2018 The ReSViNET Foundation is officially registered as a not-for-profit entity under Dutch law. In the past years ReSViNET has built strong partnerships with many stakeholders. We aim to foster global collaboration among researchers, the health sector, governments, international statutory bodies, non-profit organisations, and the wider civil society in an effort to coordinate actions and raise awareness about RSV infection and to tackle the challenge of RSV infection prevention and treatment. 

Since the inception in 2014, we have continuously been working to fulfill our Vision and Mission.
