Brighton Collaboration is a community aiming to promote and improve vaccine safety.
The success of vaccines brings the responsibility to ensure that immunisations remain as safe as possible, particularly since they are given to healthy individuals. Vaccines are now distributed faster and to wider populations than ever before. Reliable safety information must be available rapidly on a similar scale so that vaccine recipients and decision makers can evaluate vaccine benefits and risks accurately. We are committed to address this need. We improve health through vaccine safety and rigorous science.
The Collaboration Abides by the Following Principles:
Altruism – To serve the needs of the global community concerned with immunization safety.
Collaboration – To work together effectively by promoting good internal and external communications through open decision making and teamwork.
Worldwide Participation – To promote global participation.
Independence – To keep the Brighton Collaboration scientifically independent.
Multidisciplinary Approach – To involve people of different skills and backgrounds, in order to benefit and build upon their contributions.
Generalizability – To minimize bias by adhering to a strict scientific approach, ensuring broad participation and avoiding conflicts of interest.
Relevance – To maintain Brighton documents up-to-date by identifying and incorporating the highest achievable quality of clinical evidence.
Accessibility of Work – To facilitate access to Brighton documents through strategic alliances and choice of media.
Responsiveness –To provide high quality information by being open and responsive to criticism.
