After the success of its 2018 “International Global Health & Antimicrobial Resistance Workshop”, the World Federation of Public Health Associations (WFPHA) is pleased to announce its 2019 “International Vaccination & Capacity Workshop”.

The workshop will discuss strategies and good practices to increase primary prevention through increased capacity (from human to infrastructures to sustainable investments and beyond) applied to the vaccination context.

Notwithstanding the scientific evidence of the safety and effectiveness of vaccines, we continue to witness major outbreaks and deaths from vaccine-preventable diseases. The reasons are complex and vary between and within geographical regions and countries. These reasons include lack of health care access, resource constraints, population displacement due to war and violence, religious opposition, vaccine refusal, conspiracy theories, and philosophical reasons on the ethics and politics of mandatory vaccination.

Human Resources for Health (HRH) are at the core of “capacity”, which is an essential element of the Global Charter for the Public’s Health. Although there is increasing recognition that HRH are essential for the achievement of broader development goals, including Universal Health Coverage, we face a global crisis. This crisis is characterised by: sub-optimal leadership and governance; inequitable distribution; widespread shortages; poor performance; and lack of responsiveness to the needs of communities. The suboptimal resources for health are not limited to HRH only but embrace also infrastructures, institutional capacity, and strategic investment.

The WFPHA is taking the lead in enhancing the discourse on vaccination and capacity to enable its members, partners and stakeholders to increase their knowledge and advocacy efforts on these important global priorities. The workshop discussions will feed into the deliberations of civil society in the lead up to the United Nations Assembly in September 2019 on Universal Health Coverage.
