Lunch symposium: Collaborating to combat COVID-19: how do we protect more of the global population?

Thursday 11 November, 12:40 - 13:40 CET

Supported by:


Join global experts for a thought-provoking discussion on how we can increase the reach of COVID-19 prevention strategies, to ensure that more of the global population is protected. The issue of vaccine hesitancy and potential ways to overcome this will be discussed. We will also highlight the unmet need in certain populations who cannot benefit from vaccines. There will be an overview of the challenges of global equitable access to vaccines, as well as an update on the COVAX initiative. A key theme of the session will be whether improved collaborations between the pharmaceutical industry and public health could be vital in addressing these issues. We will conclude with a live panel discussion, inviting the audience to share any questions.
