As epidemics disproportionately affect low-income countries, CEPI will ensure that the vaccines it helps to develop are affordable, so that price is never a barrier to access, and they are available to populations with the most need. CEPI will thus ensure that vaccines play the fullest possible part in containing infections with epidemic potential, to prevent them becoming public health emergencies, and build a safer world. (homepage
