The CEPI Mission – “We want to stop future epidemics by developing new vaccines for a safer world”.

Vaccines are one of the world’s most important health achievements. Yet their life-saving potential hasn’t yet been realized for many known and unknown epidemic threats, particularly in low-income countries, where the risks and needs are often greatest.

CEPI was launched at the World Economic Forum in Davos in January 2017, and is a partnership of public, private, philanthropic and civil society organizations established to stimulate, finance and coordinate vaccine development for emerging infectious diseases. These diseases have been identified based on WHO’s R&D Blueprint, and encompass those for which vaccine development is unlikely to occur through market incentives alone.

CEPI has currently investment commitments of $737 million from the governments of Germany, Japan, Norway, Canada, Belgium, Australia, UK and from Wellcome and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, with an initial aim of reaching funding commitments if $1 billion for its first five year investment cycle.

CEPI´s mission is to insure the world against epidemic diseases.
