José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, went to Abu Dhabi where he participated in the Global Vaccine Summit, with Bill Gates, Co-Chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. In his speech José Manuel Barroso applauded the global campaign for immunisation and polio eradication and underlined that the EU would continue to be a key ally in this effort.
The comprehensive approach developed by the EU was aimed at improving health systems, better access to health services, investments in related areas like nutrition, sanitation and clean water, and addressing the broader social issues that impact health. The President highlighted that these broader policies were indispensable to make specific immunisation campaigns effective and sustainable.
