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. On Tuesday, June 18 from 12:30 p.m. ET to 1:30 p.m. ET, the Kaiser Family Foundation will host a live, interactive webcast to explore the importance of vaccines in global child survival efforts, including the role of the U.S. government, the GAVI Alliance, and NGOs. 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 [email protected]. All viewers are also welcome to continue the conversation on Twitter with the hashtag, #KFFglobal.

U.S. Global Health Policy: In Focus is a Kaiser Family Foundation studio webcast series devoted to discussing current and critical issues facing the U.S. Each session features experts in the field, tackling tough global health problems, who will speak about the U.S. government’s role and answer questions from webcast viewers.
