Communicable diseases’ prevention, screening and management

”Communicable diseases: prevention, screening and management” programme

FIP is launching a programme of 12 digital events covering different challenges and opportunities for professional services in the area of communicable diseases. A series of five episodes will focus on the role of pharmacists in addressing vaccine hesitancy and building and sustaining vaccine confidence in the public. The regional burden of vector-borne diseases and priorities for action by pharmacists will be explored in a 6-part series of digital events. Towards the end of the year, the FIP Communicable Diseases programme will also include the launch of a new toolkit to support pharmaceutical care and services for people living with HIV.

Joining forces across health professionals towards improved vaccination coverage

A webinar organised by:
29 June 2021

Vaccination coverage rates for several diseases are suboptimal and remain below WHO targets in many countries of all income levels. As such, FIP considers that it is essential to promote dialogue and understanding around these perceptions among healthcare professionals’ organisations at the international level, so that these can be cascaded to the regional, country and local levels.
After this webinar the participants should have a better understanding of the following topics:
1. The role of the various health professions in contributing to increased vaccination coverage
2. Drivers and barriers to diversifying vaccination pathways and providers.
3. Possible actions by the different health professions in addressing vaccine hesitancy and complacency.
4. Collaboration and autonomy of the various healthcare professionals in delivering vaccinations.

Moderator:
Jane Barratt, Secretary-General International Federation on Ageing

Panellists:
-David O. Barbe, President World Medical Association
-Howard Catton, Chief Executive Officer International Council of Nurses
- Jonathon Kruger, CEO World Physiotherapy
- Catherine Duggan, CEO International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP)
