2022 Annual Network Meeting

Kilifi, Kenya
08 – 10 November 2022
(Rescheduled 3rd Annual Network Meeting from March 2020)
Registration to attend this rescheduled meeting is by invitation only due to venue capacity restrictions 

As this event is being rescheduled from the postponed March 2020 meeting, all places are currently allocated to previous attendees who responded to the Network within the required timelines. 

We are delighted that this rescheduled meeting will now be held on 08 – 10 November 2022 in collaboration with The KEMRI Wellcome Trust Research Programme (KWTRP) in Kilifi, Kenya. KWTRP delivers internationally recognised research and capacity building and this collaboration will undoubtedly enhance our Network Meeting.

The dynamic three-day event builds on the success of our previous Network Meetings: Inaugural Meeting in 2018, 2nd Annual Network Meeting in 2019 and Virtual Network Conference 2021. The meeting is being held in Kenya to showcase research in an LMIC setting, and the facilities and environment where vaccine research is translated into real benefits to local communities. 

The Network Meeting will be delivered at the Mnarani Club Resort in Kilifi, Kenya.
