Boost your knowledge and skills on vaccination, immunology and vaccine safety issues

Beschrijving

Vaccines are one of the most effective health interventions ever developed. Immunization is a safe and effective way to protect people against several diseases. The risks of these diseases are far greater than the risk of immunization. Immunization coverage remains a matter of concern as long as people are not protected against sometimes fatal complications of infectious diseases.

Good vaccination programmes and well-trained health professionals make a difference! However, vaccinology is a poorly addressed issue during training of future health care workers, leaving many without the necessary skills and knowledge on communication about vaccines and how to administer them. Because immunization is a responsibility of all health care workers, our program is of interest to all medical, nursing or midwifery students and postgraduates.

The Summer School aims to offer an additional course to the current curricula of undergraduate and postgraduate students in (para)medical sciences. Priority for participation is offered to students of the WHO-European region.
