The Global Vaccine Safety Summit was organised by WHO, from 2 to 3 December 2019, in Geneva, Switzerland.
The WHO's Global Advisory Committee on Vaccine Safety (GACVS) celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2019. Therefore, the Global Vaccine Safety Summit was an opportunity to take stock of GACVS accomplishments and look towards priorities for the next decade. The draft Global Vaccine Safety Blueprint 2.0 strategy 2021-2030 was presented to the delegates.
The Summit was attended by vaccine safety stakeholders from around the world, including current and former members of GACVS, immunisation programme managers, national regulatory authorities, pharmacovigilance staff, representatives of UN agencies, academic institutions, technical partners, industry representatives and funding agencies. NESI was invited to attend the Summit as VSN member.
