Stakeholders’ meeting on vaccine safety communication
A “Stakeholders’ meeting on vaccine safety communication” was jointly convened with UNICEF on the 12 - 13 September 2017 in New York, USA. This consultation addressed communication strategies related to vaccine safety confidence. Five areas of common interest were identified and will be developed further: 1/a communication framework; 2/ common messaging; 3/ a platform to share communication resource materials; 4/ quality standards for planning; and 5/ enhanced partners’ collaboration and coordination. During the upcoming Global Vaccine Safety Initiative meeting, inputs will be gathered from our Members States to plan how best and more systematically address vaccine confidence issues globally.
