Innovations to Improve Vaccine Equity

November 13, 2018

Over the last decade, there has been a mobilization to ensure low-income countries are able to purchase vaccines and expedite the introduction of new products into their immunization systems. While the effort has paid off in many areas, coverage rates have stagnated in recent years. To explore the way forward, the CSIS Global Health Policy Center is hosting a half-day conference focusing on novel approaches and innovative ideas for achieving more equitable vaccine delivery worldwide.

Speakers will focus on specific strategies, technologies, and data needed to narrow disparities in vaccine coverage and overcome barriers to access in disordered and fragile settings. The conference will provide a forum for robust conversation around the need for continued U.S. and multilateral engagement through vaccine purchases and additional investments, to improve immunization rates and strengthen immunization systems globally. Additionally, the conference will highlight how immunizations fit within a priority area of the newly launched CSIS Commission on Strengthening America’s Health Security.

This event will be live webcast from this page.
