You are kindly invited to participate in ESWI’s colloquium on influenza preventing policies for children. The event will gather key opinion leaders in paediatrics, family medicine, public health policy, regulatory affairs and academic influenza research.
 
ESWI organizes this scientific symposium in response to the observation that – despite WHO’s recommendations to routinely vaccinate young children against influenza – only five EU Member States have actually included this target group in their influenza vaccination programmes.
 
Through various expert lectures and debates, the colloquium aims to:
  • explore the variety of influenza vaccination programmes for children in the EU
  • address possible hurdles for childhood vaccination
  • spark the scientific debate on concerted, well-balanced influenza preventing policies for children in Europe.
Registration
Participation in the colloquium is free of charge, but places are limited. Register now to secure your seat.
