Stakeholders Meeting on Maternal Interventions Vigilance: Safety Monitoring and Surveillance in Vaccine and other Research Settings


Vaccination during pregnancy can confer protection to mothers and their offspring with new products currently in clinical development. Monitoring the safety of those products after registration, in particular in low- and middle-income countries will require well organized surveillance systems. Last November WHO convened a stakeholder meeting with experts from WHO Collaborating Centres in vaccine safety, technical agencies with an interest in immunization in pregnancy, academia from all WHO regions, regulatory and industry umbrella organizations.
