On Tuesday, April 20, 2021, ACTION Secretariat Director Dr. Vineeta Gupta led a virtual conversation on how policymakers, civil society organizations (CSOs), government officials, and funders can create an integrated, equitable approach to immunization. The webinar was hosted by Gavi CSO Constituency in partnership with Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, RESULTS UK, ACTION, and Save the Children UK.

This year marks the first of the Immunization Agenda 2030 (IA2030), an ambitious global strategy to expand vaccine coverage over the next decade and realize a world where everyone, everywhere fully benefits from vaccines to improve health and well-being. Join us as we reflect on lessons learned through the COVID-19 pandemic and apply them to reach “zero-dose,” under-immunized children and missed communities.
