About the Coalition
Health promotion and disease prevention in later stages of life are necessary to a healthy ageing population but require combating ageist attitudes, beliefs and practices of society, healthcare providers and the broader policy environment.
The World Coalition on Adult Vaccination is made up of non-governmental organizations and academia, clinicians, public health and scientific experts and associations worldwide collaborating on a common agenda around a life course approach to vaccination, with special attention to later life.
Vaccine4Life, through this Coalition, calls on all champions and advocates representing constituents in the fields of health, ageing, chronic disease, public health, social justice, inter-generational solidarity, among many others, to embrace the narrative of a life course approach to vaccination.
Mobilize experts and their networks to help influence and shape policies to improve the uptake rates of adult vaccinations through prioritizing prevention, improving access, and reducing inequity.
