There is a critical need to strengthen vaccine deployment systems and shorten the time it takes for vaccines to reach those in need in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). In addressing downstream data and capabilities gaps, we help LMICs advance their influenza and COVID-19 vaccination policies and programs and support the creation of conditions for increased and sustained access to vaccines.

To achieve these outcomes, we intentionally invest in the generation of data and in the development of tools and operational solutions that may reduce capability gaps that other organizations are not addressing.

Ready2Respond’s approach aligns with the WHO Global Influenza Strategy (2019-2030), WHO’s coronavirus strategies, as well as with the Global Health Security Agenda (GHSA) 2024, with the International Health Regulations (IHR) 2005, and with the UN Sustainable Development Goals 3, 9, and 17.


Ready2Respond has identified several challenges and actionable solutions to promote epidemic and pandemic influenza vaccine preparedness. 


Three strategic pillar underpin Ready2Respond’s objectives over the long term:
  • Burden of Disease: Health, Society, Economics
  • Demand Generation
  • Vaccine Access
These pillars were chosen to ensure that evidence-based seasonal influenza and COVID-19 endemic vaccination programs are expanded and sustained in LMICs.
