To commemorate its 10-year anniversary, the International Vaccine Access Center at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health is hosting a panel discussion on Monday, December 9, to discuss progress made over the past decade. In the past 10 years hundreds of millions of children around the world have gained access to life-saving vaccines against Hib, pneumococcal, and rotavirus disease.
The panel discussion will be webcast here from 3 to 5 p.m. on Monday, December 9.
Speakers will also discuss what needs to be done in the next decade to sustain momentum and achieve optimal access to vaccines for people across the lifespan. This includes leveraging novel research methods and advocacy strategies to protect hard-won immunization gains against challenges such as emerging illnesses and humanitarian crises.
