The European Commission and the World Health Organization (WHO) will co-host a Global Vaccination Summit on 12 September 2019 in Brussels, Belgium.

The event takes place under the joint auspices of the European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker and WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.

This high-level one-day event aims to bring together around 400 people, including political leaders, high-level representatives from the UN and other international organisations, health ministries, leading academics, scientists and health professionals, the private sector, social media influencers, and NGOs.

The goal is to propel global action against vaccine-preventable diseases and against the spread of vaccine misinformation, which the WHO declared as one of the major health threats of 2019.

The event will demonstrate EU leadership for vaccination, boost political commitment towards eliminating vaccine preventable-diseases and engage political leaders and leaders from scientific, medical, industry, philanthropic, digital media 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

Galvanising a global response to assure health, security and prosperity through immunisation
