Reaching 22 million missed children
A seminar on accelerating access to vaccination

Oslo, Norway
14th October 2013

We kindly invite you to the seminar «The best shot: reaching 22 million missed children. A seminar on accelerating access to vaccination» on 14th October 2013 in Oslo, Norway.
While there have been significant improvements in immunization, more than 1.5 million children die each year of vaccine-preventable diseases. Significant barriers to expanding the reach of vaccines still remain, including the cost of vaccines and the lack of field-adapted products. With more than 22 million children born each year missing their basic immunizations, the international community needs a critical and constructive debate on how to improve universal vaccination coverage.
The seminar will bring together field experienced practitioners that can share the challenges faced at country level in delivering vaccines with high level policy and decision makers so that we can have a concrete dialogue on what is working and what needs improvement. Participants include governments, donors, civil society, manufacturers, academia, and others.

The seminar will take place on 14th October from 08:30 – 17:30 at Scandic Vulkan in Oslo.

Registration deadline is 7th October. We look very much forward to seeing you at the seminar!
