Presentations from the seminar: 'The best shot: reaching 22 million missed children'

In October 2013, MSF brought together experts from the vaccination field to Oslo to reflect on challenges and opportunities related to access to immunisation. As more than 22 million children remain unvaccinated each year, the one day seminar examined what improvements are needed to expand access to vaccination for all. Coming from low and middle income countries, universities, foundations, pharmaceutical companies and international health organisations, key speakers shared their experience and perspective, with a particular focus on adaptability and affordability of vaccines.
