European Immunisation Week, 2016

24 Apr 2016 - 30 Apr 2016

European Immunization Week (EIW) is celebrated across the European Region every April. It aims to raise awareness of the importance of immunization for people’s health and well-being. Activities in 2016 focused on the progress and challenges in the Region’s concerted effort to eliminate measles and rubella.

​This year European immunization Week (EIW) will take place from 24 to 30 April 2016.
European Immunisation Week is a regional initiative, led and coordinated by WHO/Europe and implemented by Member States of the European Region. For one week in April, countries across the Region unite under the EIW slogan – Prevent. Protect. Immunize. – and carry out activities to inform and engage key target audiences and to address challenges regarding immunisation. These activities include training sessions for health care workers, dissemination of informational materials, workshops, press conferences and round table discussions with political decision makers.
