“Producing a Safe and Effective Vaccine: Align Public Health Needs with Economic & Social Development Objectives”

FREE LIVE WEBINAR 23 November, 2020 | 11:00 AM – 12:30 PM (CET)

The development of a safe and effective vaccine for COVID-19 is a key step to control the pandemic. The challenges and efforts needed to rapidly develop, evaluate and produce this vaccine at global scale are huge. This is true for all vaccines. Aligning vaccine development with public health needs, economic and social development objectives is not an easy task. During this webinar, Prof. Ian Frazer, Nobel prize and inventor of the vaccine against human papillomavirus (HPV), will discuss the challenges and leverages to develop a safe and effective vaccine from the need to production.

The presentation will be followed by a panel discussion with Prof. Walter Ricciardi, Dr. Jane Barratt and Dr. Malabika Sarker focusing on advocacy efforts and political approaches to guarantee coordinated efforts to make sure that all countries have access to safe and effective vaccine with equitable conditions.

Participation is FREE, but registration is mandatory. Save Your Spot: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/producing-a-safe-and-effective-vaccine-webinar-tickets-119605038891
