Immunisation Policy Webinars 2020 – 2021
The World Federation of Public Health Associations has commenced a webinar series to promote comprehensive global public health advocacy for more effective immunisation globally and support national public health association and professionals in this effort.
The Global Advocacy Approaches to Immunisation for All Ages webinar was jointly organised with International Federation on Ageing along with members of the Immunisation for All Ages initiative. It aimed 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 and reduce inequalities in the timely, appropriate and affordable access to immunisation throughout life.
The Making Immunisation Interventions Successful webinar explored successful interventions that have been applied internationally and celebrated the importance of countries adopting strategic approaches to ensure the highest level of vaccination in each community.
In the Equitable Access to COVID-19 Vaccine for All webinar world champions involved in the management of the COVID-19 pandemic from around the world discussed challenges and leverages to guarantee equitable access to COVID-19 immunisation.
During the webinar Producing a Safe and Effective Vaccine: Align Public Health Needs with Economic & Social Development Objectives, the challenges and leverages to develop a safe and effective vaccine from the need to production were discussed. Also, advocacy efforts and political approaches to guarantee coordinated efforts to make sure that all countries have access to safe and effective vaccine with equitable conditions were explored.
The Building Confidence in COVID-19 Vaccination webinar discussed myths and misinformation surrounding COVID-19, as well as the best approaches and leverages to build confidence in vaccination.
The Value-based Vaccination: What Is the Cost of Non-vaccination for Public Health? webinar brought together experts from different fields to showcase the value-based decision-making in vaccination by addressing the evidence needed to demonstrate the full value of vaccination. Furthermore, it outlined steps along the decision-making pathway to ensure the value-based vaccination is recognized when designing and implementing policies at the supranational, regional, and national levels.
