Program-at-a-Glance

With an overarching theme of "Driving innovation from discovery to access," the 7th Global Forum program will cover the full spectrum of research and development, from basic and discovery research to diversify the TB vaccine pipeline through clinical research. With multiple candidates now advancing through late-stage clinical trials, we will also explore strategies to ensure new TB vaccines reach the populations that most need them and to maximize the public health impact. This focus on end-to-end development provides a unique opportunity for participants to hear diverse perspectives and learn and engage with experts from across the field.

The program for the 7th Global Forum on TB Vaccines is being developed around five thematic tracks. These thematic tracks align with the Strategic Framework for TB Vaccine Development in the Stop TB Partnership’s Global Plan to End TB 2023-2030, the EDCTP/AIGHD Global roadmap for research and development of tuberculosis vaccines, and the work underway by the WHO to develop a Global Framework to prepare for Country Introduction of New TB Vaccines for Adolescents and Adults.
