2nd Global meeting on implementing new and under-utilized vaccines
The Global meeting on implementing new and under-utilized vaccines is organized by WHO and partners on an annual basis. It serves as a forum for individuals working at global, regional and country levels, both in the private and public sectors, to discuss issues pertaining to the introduction of new and under-utilized vaccines. Following the 2007 meeting, a plan of action relating to new vaccine introduction was developed.
The objectives of this year's meeting were threefold:
- to review progress in implementing the 2007 plan, and consider how to overcome the challenges encountered;
- to agree on activities for the next 18 months; and
- to strengthen networks and partnerships for implementation of these activities.
