The 100 Days Mission is a global initiative launched in 2021 to ensure that key interventions we have to defeat pandemics can be deployed equitably within 100 days of recognising a new threat. Speed is of the essence in a pandemic, but the initiative is committed to equity, resilience and security on a domestic and global level, and to ensuring that these vital interventions are available in a timely manner in low- and middle-income countries.
