The Amsterdam Institute for Global Health and Development (AIGHD) in close collaboration with the World Health Organization (WHO) and EDCTP are organising a stakeholder meeting to develop a ‘Global Roadmap for the Research and Development of New Tuberculosis Vaccines’. This Roadmap will define what clinical development, key capacities and policy and access measures would be to deliver TB vaccines and ensure their public health benefit. This 2-day meeting will be part of a series of consultations with experts and key stakeholders to clarify the overall goals and challenges of TB vaccine development, define knowledge gaps across the development pathway and reach consensus on prioritisation as part of the Roadmap design.
This activity is being funded by EDCTP as part of its efforts to support TB vaccine development. EDCTP will be represented at the meeting by Michelle Helinski (Project Officer) and Ana- Lúcia Weinberg (Strategic Partnerships Officer).
