Immunize Europe Forum: a new online resource for the immunization community

WHO/Europe has launched a new information-sharing platform to increase peer-to-peer exchange among professionals working in immunization–related fields. The Immunize Europe Forum offers them a way to connect and share resources, news, upcoming events, lessons learnt and innovative ideas. 

The potential benefits of greater information sharing were identified in the European Vaccine Action Plan 2015–2020 (EVAP), adopted by all European Member States in 2014. The Forum will showcase European Immunization Week awareness-raising activities and resources, but will also help support EVAP's goals throughout the year by allowing professionals across the Region to share best practice, for example in increasing vaccination coverage, promoting immunization and disseminating evidence-based information. The Forum is intended to cover a broad range of topics through content created and posted by its users.
