Health Policy Working Group Meetings

in Parallel to the 13th Excellence in Pediatrics Conference



Following on from the success of the 5th Life Course Immunisation Summit and Working Group Meetings that took place virtually in December 2020, EIP is pleased to announce that the 6th LifeCourse Immunisation Summit Meeting will take place on 2 December 2021 in Amsterdam. Building on the progress made and actions taken since 2015 the Summit firmly places LifeCourse Vaccinations as the basis of health systems resilience and preparedness.

The Summit will feature expert presentations and updates from each of EIP’s Immunisation Working Groups bringing together 40 participants and association representatives. The 6th Summit is dedicated to examining the current situation, discussing the work that has been done by each Working Group and agreeing on priorities and actions for the next year. The day after the Summit on 3 December 2021 EIP will host a number of targeted Expert Meeting drilling down on specific vaccine barriers problems.

The conveying of the 6th Life Course Immunisation Summit is more important than ever as the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has forced us to face the fact that we are now living in a new era, one that is impacting all aspects of our lives, including our healthcare priorities. Established vaccine barriers to increase vaccination rates have now shifted and new ones have emerged, we must come together to identify, assess and react to these new priorities urgently.

The Healthcare Community and Policymakers must address the new and emerging challenges before they become insurmountable. By bringing together the key organisations, opinion leaders, associations, and policymakers EIP are constantly working on what needs to change and what activities need to happen to support the desired change. The Summit and then the Expert Group Meetings are central to EIP's work as part of the EU Vaccines Coalition and we are proud to collaborate with 20 allied organisations and associations in our work.
