We aim to advocate for policies and practices that fortify health systems and protect communities against vaccine-preventable diseases

The Vaccines Together initiative acknowledges several key barriers and challenges that hinder increasing vaccination coverage. Recognizing the need for a multifaceted approach, the initiative is focused on developing strategies and best practices to address these issues. This involves enhancing national guidance and policies, conducting educational activities, and launching awareness campaigns. Through these efforts, the Vaccines Together Initiative aims to overcome obstacles to vaccination and improve overall health outcomes effectively.

  • Lifecourse Immunization: Advocating for vaccination as a continuous process for all ages to promote long-term health.

  • Acceptance of New Vaccines: Encouraging public and professional acceptance of new vaccines through transparency and education.

  • Vaccine Confidence: Building vaccine trust by addressing misconceptions and disseminating evidence-based benefits.

  • Pockets of Lower Vaccination Coverage in Developed Countries: Identifying and strategizing to close immunization gaps in under-vaccinated regions within affluent nations.

  • Vaccine Equity: Ensuring fair and equitable vaccine access for all populations, regardless of socioeconomic status.

  • Scheduled Vaccinations Compliance: Promoting adherence to vaccination schedules for optimal protection against preventable diseases.

  • Chronic Conditions: Tailoring vaccination strategies to effectively protect individuals with chronic health conditions.

  • Vaccination during Pregnancy: Safeguarding maternal and neonatal health by promoting vaccine uptake during pregnancy.

  • Breaking the Transmission Cycle among Families: Interrupting the spread of infectious diseases within family units through targeted vaccination campaigns.

The Vaccines Together Initiative centres on collaborative action to enhance vaccine coverage and public health. We commit to promoting lifelong immunization, ensuring equitable access to new and established vaccines, and building confidence through education and evidence. Addressing disparities in vaccination coverage and ensuring adherence to schedules, particularly among vulnerable groups such as those with chronic conditions, pregnant women, and families, is key to our strategy.
