Transforming Vaccination Globally, Regionally, Nationally 2021

“‘Transforming Vaccination Globally, Regionally and Nationally’ 2021: Accelerating equity, access and sustainability through policy development and implementation” programme

The 2020 FIP digital programme, entitled: Transforming Vaccination Globally and Regionally was the first FIP outcome-based online programme of its kind, which culminated in the signing of a FIP Commitment to Action on Improving Vaccination Coverage Through Pharmacies by FIP and member organisations to transform vaccinations globally and regionally. Building on the outcomes of the 2020 programme, the FIP 2021 digital programme focuses on supporting FIP members in accelerating programmes of equity, access and sustainability of vaccinations through policy development and implementation. The 12 events explore equity in vaccinations across the different angles of age, gender, literacy & education, and interprofessional unity & collaboration. Regional roundtables will discuss and identify priorities for sustainable access to vaccinations through pharmacies around the world. The programme will result in a FIP commitment to accelerate equity, access and sustainability through policy development and implementation, as well as a special policy collection capturing the outcomes of this transformation programme.
