The European Commission organises, in cooperation with the World Health Organisation, a Global Vaccination Summit on 12 September 2019, in Brussels.

The event takes place under the joint auspices of the European Commission President Jean Claude Juncker and WHO Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus. The overall objective is to give high level visibility and political endorsement to the topic of vaccination and issue a statement to endorse and promote the benefits of vaccination as the most successful public health measure that saves millions of lives every year. It will demonstrate EU leadership for global commitment to vaccination, boost political commitment towards eliminating vaccine preventable diseases and engage political leaders and leaders from scientific, medical, industry, philanthropic and civil society.

The event will be structured around the following three round tables:

  • Roundtable 1: In Vaccines we trust
    Stepping up action to increase vaccine confidence
  • Roundtable 2: The Magic of Science
    Boosting vaccine Research, Development, and Innovation
  • Roundtable 3: Vaccines Protecting Everyone, Everywhere
    Galvanizing a global response to assure health, security and prosperity through immunization
