UEMO participates to a Workshop on new partnerships on vaccination

On May 31st 2017, UEMO participated to a workshop entitled “Seeking new partnerships for EU action on vaccination”.

This workshop was aimed at launching an action-oriented discussion to explore how cooperation at EU level can increase vaccination coverage, address shortages and strengthen routine immunisation programmes. It brought together EU institutions including the European Commission, the European Medicines Agency and the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control, Member States and Members of the European Parliament, key international organisations (WHO, UNICEF), industry, as well as healthcare professionals, patients, civil society, academics and the scientific community. Background papers on key topics served as a basis for interactive and multi-disciplinary discussions where all stakeholders contributed.

A comprehensive report of the workshop will follow shortly.
