Panelists will discuss the current state of childhood immunization, global investments in vaccines, and the opportunities and challenges faced by key stakeholders.

Speakers will answer questions from viewers, which can be submitted ahead of time or during the live program to infocus@kff.org. All viewers are also welcome to continue the conversation on Twitter with the hashtag, #KFFglobal.

Panelists:

As one of the cornerstones of global health, widespread immunization through vaccines is critical to reducing child mortality and eradicating polio, two goals endorsed by the international community and particularly emphasized by the U.S. government.
