Emerging infectious diseases affect us all. They do not respect borders.

A commitment to equitable access informs every aspect of our work. It is core to CEPI’s vision of a world in which epidemics and pandemics are no longer a threat to humanity.

CEPI take a systems approach to equitable access, seeking to enable equitable access within a broad ecosystem of national and international public and private sector partners and networks.

We work towards this goal by enabling equitable access directly through financial investments and partnerships, and indirectly through advocacy and policy contributions to the evolving ecosystem.
