WSPID Call to Action for Ensuring Fair Prices for All Vaccines for All Countries with Limited Resources

 WSPID Call to Action, calls on governments and international organizations around the world to address vaccine prices as a matter of urgency to protect the lives of present and future generations through global, equitable access to affordable vaccines.
Vaccine price should not be a barrier to vaccine introduction and the sustainability of immunization programs.  We are calling for the urgent need to ensure fair pricing for all vaccines to ensure they will be "global public goods."

ESPID Members - Middle East Conflict

 Dear ESPID Members,

We, as ESPID board, in the face of the shocking eruption of violence in the Middle East, by this statement strongly sympathize with health care workers, children and their families in this area.

 Children are among the primary victims of armed conflicts, and we call on all parties to protect our colleagues, children and their families from further violence. 

We wholeheartedly hope that all will stay safe during the coming time that is filled with fear and uncertainty.
