Regional Meeting of National Immunization Programme Managers (2015)



Delegates from 47 Member States of the European Region gathered in Antwerp, Belgium, on 1–3 September 2015 together with WHO and partners, to share evidence and best practice and work towards a coordinated effort across the Region to control vaccine-preventable diseases. The Immunization Programme Managers’ Meeting (PMM) is organized semi-annually by the Vaccine-preventable Diseases Programme of the WHO Regional Office for Europe. Through a highly interactive approach, the 2015 meeting offered participants ample opportunities to voice their opinions and experience, interact with each other and WHO staff and work together to translate the European Vaccine Action Plan into national priorities and actions. The format included presentations, panel and group discussions and question-and-answer sessions.
