In the last five years, Europe has experienced outbreaks and increased incidence of vaccine-preventable diseases, notably measles, across the region.

The success of immunization programs relies heavily on immunization program managers, who facilitate every aspect of immunization programs, from cost-effective procurement of vaccines to the vigilant monitoring of vaccine safety and efficacy. Sabin’s IAIM Network is the largest international network of immunization managers, offering opportunities to connect, share knowledge and strengthen skills required to effectively implement immunization programs.

Globally, rotavirus is the leading cause of diarrheal disease and the second leading infectious killer of infants and children under five children each year.

The Sabin Vaccine Institute held two courses on immunization in Romania from November 1-3, 2018. The first day, Media Skills: Serving as an Immunization Champion, brought health care professionals together to learn how to be an expert resource for journalists.
