EDCTP-AIGHD Special Session at the Virtual Global Forum on TB Vaccines: Launch of a Global Roadmap
EDCTP-AIGHD Special Session at the Virtual Global Forum on TB Vaccines – Accelerating TB vaccine research and development: Launch of a Global Roadmap
Responsible for more than 1.4 million deaths a year, TB is a major global public health challenge. Ambitious global TB control goals have been established, but it is widely recognised that these will not be achieved without safe and effective vaccines. Addressing this gap will require coordinated cross-sectoral partnerships and a focus on “end-to-end” clinical development, from early-stage discovery research through to programmatic implementation.
The programme includes presentations and panel discussions on the following topics:
- The TB Vaccine R&D Roadmap: actions and enabling considerations
- Opportunities for TB Vaccine R&D
- A community perspective on the TB Vaccine R&D Roadmap
