13:00 – 14:30 PM CEST


The World Federation of Public Health Associations (WFPHA) and the International Federation on Ageing (IFA) along with members of the Immunisation for All Ages (IFAA) initiative, with sponsorship provided by Pfizer, will hold this timely webinar to coincide with the (virtual) WHO World Health Assembly.

We invite senior representatives of nation states and civil societies who would normally attend the World Health Assembly, along with international and national NGOs involved in public health and immunisation, to participate in this forum on global advocacy for immunisation throughout life.

The aims of the webinar are consistent with the IFAA’s Immunisation for all Ages Call to Action to explore ways to encourage all governments to:

  • Prioritise immunisation across the life course as a central component of Universal Health Care
  • Remove barriers to access for appropriate immunisation throughout life to ensure all people are protected and no one is left behind
  • Reduce inequalities in the timely, appropriate and affordable access to immunisation throughout life

 Participation is free, but registration is mandatory.


  • Dr Jane Barratt, International Federation on Ageing, Secretary General
  • Dr Katie Atwell, University of Western Australia, Senior Lecturer
  • Dr Rüdiger Krech, World Health Organisation, Health Promotion, Division of Universal Health Coverage and Healthier Populations, Director
  • Dr David Swerdlow, Clinical Epidemiology Lead & Global COVID-19 Medical Lead, Pfizer Vaccines Global Medical Team, Senior Director
  • Dr Michael Moore, World Federation of Public Health Associations, Immediate Past President
