Global Forum on TB Vaccines

The Global Forum on TB Vaccines is the world’s largest gathering of stakeholders striving to develop new vaccines to prevent TB. It provides a unique opportunity to review the state of the field, share the latest research and findings, and identify new and innovative approaches to TB vaccine R&D, with the end goal of developing and deploying new TB vaccines as quickly as possible. To date, six Global Forums and one virtual edition have been held, beginning with the first Global Forum in Geneva, Switzerland in 2001 (convened by WHO). The Working Group on New TB Vaccines convenes the Global Forum in collaboration with IAVI, the TuBerculosis Vaccine Initiative, and host country partner organizations.

Tuesday, 14 November 2023 | Paris, France

The Stop TB Partnership Working Group on New TB Vaccines (WGNV) held its first annual meeting on 14 November 2023. The meeting was part of a full-day New TB Tools Summit – a collaboration between WGNV, the Stop TB Partnership’s Working Group on New Drugs and New Diagnostics Working Group, TB Alliance, FIND, and IAVI – held just in advance of the 53rd Union World Conference on Lung Health. We were delighted to have so many participants attend the meeting and express interest in our work and the research and development of new TB vaccines.

The meeting had three main parts: an introduction to the WGNV, an overview of the state of the field, and a panel discussion on key topics in TB vaccine R&D.
