@EU_Commission @DrTedros @JunckerEU @EU_Health @UN_News_Centre “It is inexcusable that in a world as developed as ours, there are still children dying of diseases that should have been eradicated long ago. Worse, we have the solution in our hands but it is not being put to full use"- President @JunckerEU 🇪🇺 bit.ly/2mePbPx
@EU_Commission @DrTedros @JunckerEU @EU_Health @UN_News_Centre “After many years of progress, we are at a critical turning point. #Measles is resurging, and 1 in 10 children continues to miss out on essential childhood #vaccines”-@DrTedros bit.ly/2mePbPx #VaccinesWork
@EU_Commission @DrTedros @JunckerEU @EU_Health @UN_News_Centre @V_Andriukaitis @WHO_Europe “We will only get back on track by ensuring everyone can benefit from the power of #vaccines; if governments & partners invest in immunization as a right for all. It's time to step up efforts & support vaccination as a core part of #HealthForAll”-@DrTedros bit.ly/2mePbPx
@EU_Commission @DrTedros @JunckerEU @EU_Health @UN_News_Centre @V_Andriukaitis @WHO_Europe In the past 3 years, 7 countries, including 4 in the @WHO_Europe , have lost their #measles elimination status. New outbreaks are the direct result of gaps in vaccination coverage, including amongst teenagers and adults who were never fully vaccinated.
To tackle vaccination gaps effectively, #VaccinationSummit19 addresses multiple barriers to vaccination:
-Rights & regulations
-Accessibility, availability, quality & convenience of services
-Social & cultural norms
-Values & support
-Individual motivation
-Knowledge & skills
@DrTedros @JunckerEU @WHOWPRO @pahowho @WHOAFRO @WHOSEARO @WHO_Europe @WHOEMRO @EU_Commission @EU_Health WHO & @EU_Commission urge for strong support of @gavi, which plays a critical role in achieving the global vaccine goals in the world's least-resourced countries. bit.ly/2mePbPx #VaccinesWork
@DrTedros @JunckerEU @WHOWPRO @pahowho @WHOAFRO @WHOSEARO @WHO_Europe @WHOEMRO @EU_Commission @EU_Health @gavi @GaviSeth @V_Andriukaitis New models and opportunities for stepping up vaccine research and development are also on the #VaccinationSummit19 agenda, as well as ways to ensure that immunization is a public health priority and a universal right. bit.ly/2mePbPx #VaccinesWork
