IRVINE, Calif., September 27, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Immunis, Inc., a private biotech company generating an innovative treatment for age and disease-related immune decline, announces that its Chairman, Dr. Hans Keirstead, delivered a keynote on behalf of the National Institute of Child Sexual Assault (NICSA) at the UN General Assembly in New York City. As part of Immunis’ ongoing Corporate Social Responsibility Program, Dr. Keirstead presented a keynote on child sexual assault (CSA), which aligns with the United Nation’s efforts to eradicate human trafficking and eliminate emotional, economical and physical violence against children and women.
NICSA is the leading organization in the CSA field that provides governance and accountability to monetary distributions in the sector. NICSA is informed by third-party government and academic institutions to determine which aspects of CSA are most influential now. NICSA maximizes human impact by funding those CSA organizations that address priority targets, including 1) advertising of child trafficking, 2) explicit abuse of children, 3) sting operations to jail perpetrators, 4) child rehabilitation centers, 5) legislative changes to protect children, 6) education of first responders and parents, and 7) research on CSA.
"We are your intelligence agency, deploying your support in the most efficient way possible for the greatest impact in fighting child sexual assault," says Dr. Hans Keirstead.
Dr. Keirstead’s social responsibility efforts extend to other projects, including the Zero Abuse Project and Operation Underground Railroad, which have been successful in rescuing children from sex trafficking and exploitation, and effecting legislative changes to protect children and enable prosecution of perpetrators. His expertise in worldwide affairs was also highlighted in a recent keynote he presented to the United Nations to address artificial intelligence in healthcare. His international volunteerism demonstrates his dedication to providing solutions for global issues, including healthcare and violence against children.
