EU Health Award for NGOs promoting Vaccination launched!

15 May 2017

The Commission is calling for applications for its new EU Health Award which aims to recognise and reward the contribution of non-governmental organisations (NGOS) in the promotion of Vaccination. Making people immune to diseases caused by viruses or bacteria is one of the most cost-effective public health measures available. Who remembers today that smallpox killed between 300 million and 500 million people in the 20th century alone? This success hasn't stopped people from growing sceptical about the need to vaccinate. In the efforts to ensure high vaccination rates in the population, the role of NGOs is crucial.

Deadline: 30 June 2017
