WHO’s Vision and Mission in Immunization and Vaccines 2015-2030 describes WHO’s strategic focus and key roles in achieving the goals of the Global Vaccine Action Plan 2011-2020, across all areas of work and all levels of the organization, in this decade of vaccines to 2020 and continuing to 2030.

The strategic directions described in this document are consistent with the WHO reform and aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals. They reinforce WHO’s longstanding role as an international leader, setting norms, establishing policies, and reaching international agreement on health priorities. They also bring forward more focused roles for WHO in providing technical assistance and managing knowledge and data.

WHO’s Vision and Mission illustrates how the organization plans to evolve its critical role in immunization and vaccines to meet the needs of future health programmes. It will be used to guide internal decisions about where to focus resources, at what level of the organization, and in which strategic directions.
