Other TitlesBangkok, Thailand, 11-13 May 2009
AbstractThe Regional Workshop on Vaccine Prioritization for the South-East Asia Region was held in Bangkok from 11-13 May 2009. The meeting provided an important forum in the Region to share experiences, agree on common policies and chalk out strategies to prioritize the introduction of new vaccines and technologies in Member States. It also provided an opportunity for experts from the Member States, region and outside the region to interact with each other for discussions on common issues. This report contains the essence of the key topics discussed, the criteria to be used for prioritizing vaccines, a decision making frame work and a list of new and underutilized vaccines as "immediate", "in the near future", and "in the distant future" categories for consideration in prioritizing vaccines by the Member States in the Region.
