Vaccine Confidence Project Chief Married to GSK-Funded Employer
Heidi Larson is the head of London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine’s “Vaccine Confidence Project.” She is also married to the school’s director, Peter Piot, a longtime friend and beneficiary of GlaxoSmithKline CEO Andrew Witty. In 2017, GlaxoSmithKline announced its “Sir Andrew Witty GSK Scholarships” through the London School of Medicine and Tropical Hygiene.
“I have known Andrew for more than thirty years, and I am delighted that his outstanding leadership and achievements are being honoured with this scholarship fund established in his name. It is a fitting tribute to his efforts to improve health around the world.”

“more than thirty years” – That’s about the entire time Witty has been at Glaxo, Glaxo Wellcome and GlaxoSmithKline. Piot makes clear that the scholarships play a major role at the school:
“The Sir Andrew Witty GSK Scholarships will play an important role in supporting the next generation of public and global health leaders in Africa. The MSc programme will equip them with the expertise to improve health services in their countries and communities, and will strengthen the continent’s capacity to respond to the important and changing health challenges it faces.”
Peter Piot’s school gets funding for scholarships named after his longtime friend, GSK’s CEO. Piot’s wife and employee tries to convince everybody that vaccines are safe. Piot and Larson happily take money from the pharmaceutical company that stole British and American vaccine-injured children’s medical records from a London hospital.
