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 civil society organisations towards improved vaccination coverage

A webinar organised by:
21 October 2021

Vaccination coverage rates for several diseases are suboptimal and remain below WHO targets in many countries of all income levels. For FIP, it is essential to engage with civil society organisations representing different constituencies – from patient advocacy groups to older adult organisations and to vaccination advocates – to discuss and outline synergistic and complementary advocacy actions for broader access and convenience of vaccination services through a diversity of providers and pathways. This event will gather different civil society organisations to express their concerns, best practices and expectations, namely with regards to the role of pharmacists, for improving vaccination coverage, and to identify potential alignments in advocacy strategies.

Learning objectives:
1. Understand the role of the various civil society organisations in contributing to increased vaccination coverage.
2. Explore drivers and barriers to diversifying vaccination pathways and providers, allowing for better access to vaccination services.
3. Discuss possible actions and synergies by the different stakeholders in addressing vaccine hesitancy and complacency.

Moderator:
- Catherine Duggan, CEO, FIP

Panellists:
- Jane Barratt , Secretary General, International Federation on Ageing
- Mariano Votta, Director, Active Citizenship Network
- Iryna Vlasenko, Vice president, International Diabetes Federation
- Siân Williams, CEO, International Primary Care Respiratory Group
