The 4th Global Forum on TB Vaccines took place in Shanghai, China from 21 – 24 April 2015, marking the first time that this important convening on TB vaccine research and development was held in Asia. This landmark event brought together nearly 300 researchers, product developers, policy makers, advocates, and other stakeholders from more than 30 countries to discuss the latest research and findings in the field, to discuss the path forward for this critical research, and to foster new partnerships and collaborations.
The biannual Global Forum on TB Vaccines is an important opportunity to monitor progress in the field and to advance a common agenda that is developed and driven by the TB vaccine research community. The program covers all aspects of TB vaccine research and development, from basic research through to clinical trials, manufacturing, access, advocacy and other important topics. The 3rd Global Forum was held in Cape Town in March 2013, the 2nd Global Forum was held in Tallinn, Estonia in September 2010, and the first Global Forum was held in Geneva, Switzerland in 2001.
