Founded in 2010, according to their about page, “The SaneVax mission is to promote only Safe, Affordable, Necessary & Effective vaccines and vaccination practices through education and information. We believe in science-based medicine. Our primary goal is to provide the information necessary for you to make informed decisions regarding your health and well-being. We also provide referrals to helpful resources for those unfortunate enough to have experienced vaccine-related injuries.”
Funded by / Ownership
SaneVax does not clearly state ownership. Although they lack transparency donations derive revenue.
Analysis / Bias
In reality, their mission is not science-based medicine but rather a rebuke against science-based medicine. In short, this is an anti-vaccine organization that promotes pseudoscience and pharmaceutical industry conspiracies, especially as it relates to the HPV vaccination. For an excellent description and refutation of SaneVax, I recommend reading this from the website Science-Based Medicine.
