How to turn vaccines into vaccinations
Immunisation is the most effective way to protect children from preventable diseases. The World Health Organization has declared low vaccination rates as one of the top 10 threats to global health. In Europe, vaccine uptake remains lower amongst specific ethnic, religious and cultural minority groups. The EU-funded RIVER-EU project will identify the health system barriers and work to remove them. The focus will be on MMR and HPV vaccination in selected underserved communities (migrants in Greece, Turkish and Moroccan women and girls in the Netherlands, Ukrainians in Poland and Roma in Slovakia). By shedding light on the health system determinants of low vaccine uptake, the project will develop strategies to increase vaccination rates.
