This week, @Vaccines is curated by Frédérique Tissandier from Gavi’s media team. Fred is attending #MCIA16 – the first ministerial conference on immunisation in Africa – taking place in Addis Ababa, 24-25 February.
Hosted by the World Health Organisation and the African Union, the conference brings together leaders, ministers, experts, policymakers, donors and journalists to explore how best to forward immunisation across Africa. The challenge is to ensure that every child has access to the lifesaving vaccines they need.
Fred has promised to tweet us a flavour of the atmosphere at the conference, share bits and pieces from side events, and answer any questions. So, if you’re not in Addis next week, make sure to tune into @Vaccines and follow Fred’s updates. It’ll be almost like being there!
