About the Global Forum

Join us for the 6th Global Forum on TB Vaccines, taking place in Toulouse, France from 20 - 22 April 2021, under the high patronage of Mr. Emmanuel Macron, President of the French Republic and under the patronage of Mr. Olivier Veran, Minister for Solidarity and Health.

The Global Forum on TB Vaccines is the world’s largest gathering of stakeholders striving to develop new vaccines to prevent TB. It provides an important and unique opportunity to review the state of the field, share the latest research findings, and identify new and innovative approaches to TB vaccine R&D, with the end goal of developing and deploying new TB vaccines as quickly as possible.


The Global Forum on TB Vaccines is an important opportunity for the broad range of stakeholders involved in TB vaccine R&D to come together, to share their research and findings, to promote innovation in TB vaccine research, and to foster partnerships and collaborations. The organizers remain committed to providing this opportunity to the TB vaccine research community, to continue to build on the momentum and progress in the field since we last gathered in New Delhi in 2018 and to share important knowledge gained through COVID-related research.

As of now we are still planning to convene the 6th Global Forum on TB Vaccines in person in Toulouse from 20 – 22 April 2021. However, the health and safety of participants is our top priority, and we also recognize that many of our speakers and delegates may need to remain in their home countries to continue important research. We will be monitoring the COVID-19 situation closely and considering options over the next several weeks. An announcement will be made in October 2020 about the format of the next Global Forum on TB Vaccines. Registration and abstract submissions for the 6th Global Forum have been postponed as we determine the best course of action.

In closing, the organizing partners of the 6th Global Forum on TB Vaccines offer our gratitude and support to all those on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic, and our thoughts are with those who have been impacted by it. We also thank the many researchers and institutions around the globe – many of which are our partners - that are working around the clock to develop tests, treatments, and vaccines. Through cooperation and collaboration, the world is rising to the challenge presented by this unprecedented pandemic.

We will update this page as information is available. If you have any questions, please contact us.
