Our mission

CEPI's mission is to accelerate the development of vaccines and other biologic countermeasures against epidemic and pandemic threats so they can be accessible to all people in need.

CEPI 2.0 and the 100 Days Mission

CEPI’s 2022-2026 plan, known as CEPI 2.0, will help the world make the scientific progress needed to respond to the next Disease X threat with a new vaccine in just 100 days. This goal is known as the 100 Days Mission. It is embraced by leaders of the G7 and G20, and is widely recognised as an ambitious global collaborative effort.
