The Vaccines Policy Lab highlights resources and links to leading organizations working on vaccines and immunization, with a focus on international policy and resources, R&D, finance, and advocacy and communication. Challenges to keeping individuals healthy come from many directions, and vaccines are some of the most cost effective and impactful tools for preventing disease and improving global health outcomes. The cost of leaving these challenges unattended is great, but the opportunities to create a positive turning point in health are exponentially greater. The Vaccines Policy Lab aims to provide tools to help vaccine developers and advocates make strides in creating a healthier global community.
Brainstorming discussions convened in key regional locations to discuss how the 2011 Summit
could effectively engage leaders around the theme of vaccines. The meetings
brought together a small group of key, multi-sector stakeholders and implementers
to share perspectives, and highlight successes and innovation in the field. Meetings
were by invitation only.
