Immunization, Vaccines and Biologicals


Proceedings of the second Global Vaccine Research Forum, Montreux, 10-12 June 2001

The aim of this annual Forum is to bring together the major players in vaccine development and implementation, to communicate and discuss the activities and strategies adopted by the GAVI Research and Development Task Force, to explore what is new in the vaccine field, and to make recommendations. The 2001 annual Global Forum report focuses on "the big three": AIDS, TB, malaria, and on the GAVI R&D Task Force projects: rotavirus, pneumococcus, meningitis and new immunization technologies. The GVRF is a forum used to discuss and exchange views of industry and the public sector and the economical incentives behind vaccine development with the aim of bringing to the forefront all the problems which vaccine manufacturers are facing in developed and developing countries.
