Our impact

CEPI has backed the development of 30+ vaccine candidates for its priority pathogens, overseeing a number of breakthroughs, including the first-ever approved Chikungunya vaccine and advancing the first-ever Nipah and Lassa vaccines into Phase 1 trials. A key player in the COVID-19 response, CEPI also has one of the world’s largest COVID-19 vaccine portfolios and co-led COVAX, which helped to distribute nearly 2 billion doses to 146 nations.
