Subject: Pandemic preparedness beyond COVID-19: Investing in vaccines production and supply for LMICs , 21 October 2021, 09:30-11:00 CET

We cordially invite you to attend the second UNCTAD and WHO webinar on "Investing in vaccines production and supply for LMICs," to take place on 21 October 2021, 09:30-11:00 CET. The webinar is organized as part of the 7th World Investment Forum (WIF), 2021.
It is to be recalled that the first UNCTAD/WHO webinar on investing in vaccines production and supply capacity of LMICs took place on 3 March 2021. The webinar brought together key international and strategic players. Panellists underscored the contribution of building production capacity in LMICs to overcome supply bottlenecks, promote equitable distribution of vaccines, ensure availability of routine vaccines, and build capacity for pandemic preparedness. They underscored the technological, financial and market complexities of vaccine production. Yet, to a large extent, they pointed out the potential to overcome the challenges by coordinating efforts; building strategic partnerships among manufacturers, investors, and technology developers; and taking a regional approach to support the sustainability of investment. What happened since then?
The objective of the upcoming webinar is to take stock of partnerships to date and to discuss the way forward in intensifying efforts for building vaccine productive capacity in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs).
WIF attracts around 6,000 participants from all over the world representing industries, governments, investment and other financial service providers, development partners and civil society.
Come and listen to the progress made and the challenges experienced by global, regional and other strategic players to building vaccines production capacity in LMICs and contribute to the way forward.
