(PHAA) and will be held from Jun 29 - Jul 01, 2021 at Perth Convention And Exhibition Centre, Perth, Western Australia, Australia. Target Audience: The conference will aim to facilitate conversations on improving the effectiveness and efficiencies of immunization through knowledge sharing and relationship building. The program must consider the needs and interests of the immunization-focussed audience to ensure attraction and participation in the conference. The target audience will be stakeholders able to effect and/or influence change at the systems and/or practice level including: • Health care professionals – doctors, nurses, allied health, pharmacy, etc working in immunization and public health • Vaccine-preventable disease control from the laboratory bench to clinic • Commonwealth, state and local government – Ministers, Chief Health officers and staff, and health and social sector department representatives • Communicable disease epidemiology and laboratory science • Academia • NGO/community and social sector provider and advocacy organizations • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health workers, and • Organizations in other preventative health fields Description: In 2021 the Conference theme will be ‘Life course immunisation - access, equity, and innovation’. The theme has been established to shine a light on the challenges and exciting opportunities that exist to ensure the benefits of life-saving immunisation can be optimised. As articulated under the global Sustainable Development Goals, specifically SDG3, immunisation contributes to ensuring healthy lives and promote wellbeing for all at all ages. Although Australia has one of the most comprehensive immunisation programs of any country worldwide, there continues to be gaps in access and uptake of life-saving vaccines. As more vaccines become available for use across the life course, protecting pregnant women and their newborns through to the elderly, and in a targeted way for groups with specific disease risk factors, it is critical that we apply principals of equity to our policies and programs. More than ever, new technologies, available but not yet utilised data and new vaccines and delivery methods offer the promise of reaching more people to prevent serious new and old diseases. This conference will provide a dynamic and engaging forum to discuss all the latest developments in immunisation. 2021 heralds a new and exciting decade of opportunity in preventative health care, of which immunization is a flagship. The program will include keynote presentations and selected long, short and table top abstract presentations.
