27 - 29 February 2008

In February of 2008, around 50 immunization experts from the Americas gathered in Bogotá, Colombia, to discuss strategies for broadening the adoption of pneumococcus, rotavirus and HPV vaccines. The Sub-regional Symposium on New Vaccines provided an opportunity for health planners in Peru and Colombia to share their experiences, needs and goals; to dialogue with international researchers; and to lay the groundwork for adopting vaccines against these diseases, as well as establishing the surveillance necessary to measure their impact.
