Call to Action for Ensuring Fair Prices for All Vaccines for All Countries with Limited Resources

  • We are calling on governments and international organisations around the world to address vaccine price as a matter of urgency, to protect the lives of present and future generations through global, equitable access to affordable vaccines.

  • Addressing the systemic issue of unaffordable vaccine prices requires a comprehensive, multi-stakeholder approach. This includes professional associations, non-profits, civil society & individuals.

  • We invite you to show your support for this Call to Action by signing on below.
