Workshop B: Vaccine Market Access and Regulatory Affairs for Global Health

The market for vaccines is more complex than most and there are many definitions of what constitutes a healthy market – one that ensures sustainable, sufficient, relevant, predictable supply to meet demand. There are a complex, interconnected set of factors that together comprise the market place, including the regulatory environment, the incentives or disincentives for investing in new innovation and R&D, how the value of vaccines are assessed, the procurement of vaccines, as well as the infrastructure for delivery of and access to vaccines. How global, regional, and national stakeholders, including government authorities, multi-laterals, NGOs, and industry, make decisions and act in the marketplace can determine the health or the fragility of the vaccine market in the short and long-term. This session will explore what we mean by a healthy vaccine market, the various factors that comprise the market, and factors that can enable or impede a healthy market.
  • Overview of global vaccine market and describing the characteristics of a healthy market (review of current frameworks)
  • Insights from the introduction of new vaccines and strategies that have been leveraged to encourage sustainable, sufficient, relevant, predictable supply to meet demand – what’s worked and what hasn’t in different contexts, including LMICs
  • Opportunities for greater collaboration across stakeholders, including industry, to think holistically about vaccine markets and address key challenges that undermine the health of the market
