We want to create a world in which epidemics are no longer a threat to humanity.

CEPI wants to galvanise the development of new vaccines against diseases we know could cause the next devastating epidemic.

Our approach


The estimated annual global cost of moderately severe to severe pandemics


The number of diseases WHO identified as public health risks due to epidemic potential and lack of biomedical countermeasures


The minimum average cost for progressing one vaccine against each of WHO’s 11 priority epidemic infectious diseases

Epidemic diseases affect us all. They do not respect borders.

CEPI (pronounced 'seppy') aims to stimulate and accelerate the development of vaccines against emerging infectious diseases and enable access to these vaccines for people during outbreaks.
