National Influenza Vaccine Summit
Partners working together to prevent influenza!
What is the National Influenza Vaccine Summit?
The National Influenza Vaccine Summit (NIVS) was founded by the American Medical Association (AMA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Currently the NIVS is led by the Immunization Action Coalition (IAC), the CDC, and the National Vaccine Program Office (NVPO). The NIVS is dedicated to addressing and resolving influenza and influenza vaccine issues.
The NIVS now consists of over 400 partners representing more than 100 public and private organizations. Summit participants include a wide range of professionals from the healthcare industry, public health and private medical sectors, vaccine manufacturers and distributors, consumers, and others interested in stopping the transmission of vaccine-preventable diseases.
The Summit receives financial support from Becton Dickenson, CSL Biotherapies, GlaxoSmithKline, Health Industry Distributors Association, MedImmune, Inc., Merck & Co., Novartis Vaccines, sanofi pasteur, and Walgreens. Donations from individuals wishing to support the activities of the Summit are also accepted.
European Scientific Working Group on Influenza
Influenza experts and other stakeholders gathered on May 2, 2013, in Brussels, Belgium, for the third Flu Summit organized by the European Scientific Working Group on Influenza (ESWI). The aim of this annual event is to provide a platform to discuss influenza prevention strategies and review new developments in the field. Summit participants include healthcare professionals, scientific researchers, and organizations of at-risk patients and senior citizens. Summit reports are available at Download the 2012 Summit report.
The NIVS and ESWI continue to collaborate on the overall goal of reducing the burden of influenza on both sides of the Atlantic.
