Adult Vaccination Consensus Statements on Mobilizing Policy and Public Health Communications
The International Federation on Ageing (IFA) is pleased to release the following consensus statements:
Adult Vaccination in the Asia Pacific: Mobilizing Policy and Practice
The following consensus statement was formed as result of the “Adult Vaccination in the Asia Pacific: Mobilizing Policy and Practice” expert meeting, convened by the IFA to bring together interdisciplinary experts in the Asia Pacific region championing increased country-level vaccination uptake.
Uniting Public Health Campaigns to Improve Influenza Awareness
The following consensus statement was formed as a result of the “Fighting the Flu through Targeted Awareness Campaigns” expert meeting convened by the IFA in January 2019 which brought together leading experts in vaccination, ageing, and public health with communications professionals skilled in researching, creating, evaluating and revising public health messages to ensure directed impact.
The considerations outlined in the statement underpin a concerted effort by diverse stakeholders to invest in improving health outcomes in older people and at-risk groups. Stakeholders agree that improving influenza vaccination awareness through collaborative awareness-raising efforts requires increased understanding of, and responses to, diverse target populations with varying vaccination attitudes.
