We warmly invite you to join us for the International African Vaccinology Conference to be held in South Africa at the Lagoon Beach Hotel in Cape Town from 8th to 11th of November 2012.
This is a landmark occasion being the first conference on vaccinology held in Africa by Africans about African immunization and vaccine preventable diseases, involving the international vaccinology community including academics, immunization programme managers and policy makers.
The broad theme of the conference is Advocating for efforts to protect African children, families and communities from the threat of Infectious diseases, and the programme reflects this with a strong emphasis on evidence-based science, policy, advocacy and communication. Conference sessions will give ample opportunity for discussion and contributions so that policy needs can be informed by the best research to date. We visualize lively debate on the Challenges facing Africa, new vaccines and progress toward reaching our Millennium Development Goals, among other topics.
