The Initiative for Vaccine Research: Strategic Plan 2010 - 2020
This document outlines current and future plans, objectives, and milestones for the department dedicated to vaccines and immunization at the World Health Organization (WHO). This long-term strategic plan takes account of the evolving vaccine research and development landscape, and of the strong leadership role the Initiative for Vaccine Research (IVR) can play as the WHO integrated vaccine research arm. The plan is organized in a matrix approach that uses four strategic functions and a set of priority areas to address public health priorities. The four strategic functions that will guide the core work of IVR over the next 10 years are: i) identification of vaccine and vaccination research priorities; ii) the development of research standards and guidelines; iii) the strengthening of research and product development capacity; and iv) the translation of research results into policy and practice.
