EU Health Award EU Health Award for NGOs promoting Vaccination launched!

Today, the European Commission launches the EU Health Award for NGOs 2017, which aims to reward NGOs that have contributed to a higher level of public health in the EU through vaccination.

Vytenis Andriukaitis, Commissioner for Health and Food Safety said "Vaccines are one of the safest and most cost-effective ways to ensure public health and avoid preventable disease. Decreasing public trust in immunisation poses a serious threat that needs to be addressed. Anti-vaccination myths and lack of knowledge can lead to people refusing vaccines, which in turn leads to insufficient group immunisation and avoidable death. We need the support of the entire community to ensure optimal vaccination rates, and NGOs play an enormous role. I want to recognise and reward outstanding initiatives by NGOs which have significantly contributed to higher levels of vaccination in the EU population."
