NEWS:

The Support Active Ageing through Immunisation (SAATI) working group, comprised of healthcare advocates and professionals, was established in late 2011, with the aim of promoting the development of improved adult immunisation strategies and policies across Europe.

Through the engagement of stakeholders and policy makers, SAATI seeks to play a leading role in promoting pro-active discussions at the European level as to the value of an adult immunisation schedule. ILC-UK’s specific contribution to the SAATI project is the production of a report card assessing adult immunisation polices across the EU-27 states. Policy analysis centres on six vaccine-preventable diseases across various criteria. On completion, the report card will be combined with output from the two other SAATI work streams, public awareness and education and an epidemiological analysis, to be launched officially through an event in the European Parliament or nearby institution.
