RIVER-EU published its first results

RIVER-EU  (Reducing Inequalities in Vaccine uptake in the European Region - Engaging Underserved communities) of which EUPHA is one of the partners published an article on health system barriers to vaccination, specifically HPV/MMR vaccination among children in Ukrainian migrants in Poland. The study findings have implications for vaccination of migrant children in Poland, as well as other migrants receiving countries. A concerted effort is required to improve migrants’ awareness of the significance of vaccinations. Barriers to healthcare access must be recognized by policymakers. Importantly, removing the cost barrier may increase the uptake of the HPV vaccine among Ukrainian migrant adolescents. Please find the paper here
