Meeting: The best shot: reaching 22 million missed children. A seminar on accelerating access to vaccination
MSF
14 October 2013; Oslo, Norway.
“While there have been significant improvements in immunization, more than 1.5 million children die each year of vaccine-preventable diseases. Significant barriers to expanding the reach of vaccines still remain, including the cost of vaccines and the lack of field-adapted products. With more than 22 million children born each year missing their basic immunizations, the international community needs a critical and constructive debate on how to improve universal vaccination coverage.
“The seminar will bring together experienced field practitioners that can share the challenges faced at country level in delivering vaccines with high level policy and decision makers so that we can have a concrete dialogue on what is working and what needs improvement. Speakers include representatives from Médecins Sans Frontières, International Rescue Committee, Duke University, Serum Institute of India, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Harvard University, representatives from country governments, among others.”
