CEPI vaccine R&D pipeline and cost tracking survey

CEPI is inviting you to participate in a survey that is mapping vaccine research and development pipelines and associated costs for emerging infectious diseases.

To achieve its strategic objectives, and to make efficient use of its financial resources, CEPI needs to draw on a variety of vaccine candidates and leverage diversity of product development partners. CEPI is currently building up a comprehensive knowledge base on available vaccine candidates and their current status, in order to serve vaccine preparedness needs against non-commercial epidemic disease threats.

Our request

Through this survey, you are asked to:

  • Report the current status of development of vaccine candidates against non-commercial epidemic disease threats.
  • Clarify current sources of funding, development costs incurred and future funding needs for bringing the vaccines through phase II and potentially phase III in response to potential disease outbreaks.
  • Specify main drivers of R&D costs and technical success to date and identify potential drivers of future costs and technical risks for bringing your vaccine candidates through late stages of clinical development.

Diseases in scope

  • Diseases that are of main interest to CEPI include those listed by the WHO Blueprint as priority diseases: Crimean Congo haemorrhagic fever, Lassa fever, MERS-CoV, Severe acute respiratory syndrome, Nipah, Rift Valley Fever, Chikungunya, Zika, Severe fever with thrombocytopaenia syndrome, Ebola, Marburg. (For more details, see here).
  • Other diseases that have epidemic potential and which are not included in the WHO priority list.


Please submit your completed survey file via our webform or email.
