An interactive program highlighting recent immunization and global health successes, and honoring the individuals, communities and partners who have made them possible. We will celebrate how far we have come, and prepare to spend the following day focused on the challenges left to resolve.
Welcome statements on behalf of the co-hosts.
A look at how the full global community is committed to ensuring children everywhere have access to vaccines. We will discuss how countries, communities, companies and others can partner to build strong, sustainable immunization programs – with polio eradication as a key milestone and our frontline workers as our most critical heroes – making child health a long-standing, impactful priority.
A conversation dedicated to polio and the Global Polio Eradication Initiative’s innovative new strategic plan. Together we will reinforce global support for eradication as a critical milestone in the Decade of Vaccines that strengthens long-term routine immunization, and announce new commitments to the effort.
A closer look at the links between polio eradication and stronger long-term routine immunization systems that emphasizes the need for all children to have sustainable access to critical vaccines. We will explore specific challenges and best practices, with a particular focus on the hardest-to-reach children.
A discussion on innovation, and how the global community can build on successes like polio eradication and strong routine immunization through R&D, new vaccine introduction and novel approaches to delivery. We’ll take a particular look at tools and methods developed in emerging economies and developing countries.
An opportunity for partners to reflect on the Summit conversation, and to share our commitment to bring the promise of immunization to children everywhere.
