World Alliance Against Antibiotic Resistance. Alliance Contre le développement des Bactéries Multi-Résistantes. The WAAAR declaration against antibiotic resistance

Varicella vaccine in the European Union


The Vaccine Preventable Diseases programme of the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) has set up a working group to provide guidance to the European Union Member States on the potential  introduction of varicella vaccination.

The aim of the final report of the working group is to support EU Member States in their national decision-making  process with regard to childhood varicella vaccination. 

To assist the working group in developing an evidence-based guidance document, a systematic review of the best  available evidence was commissioned along with work on varicella modelling. The systematic review was produced  by Pallas Health Research and Consultancy and the modelling outputs by a Framework Partnership Agreement  (ECDC Grant 2009/002) with Pisa University.
