Focus on knowledge creation

Without ideas there is nothing to manage
SYNAPSE is proud to co-organise the “Harmonized Safety Monitoring of Immunization in Pregnancy International Consensus Conference” that will happen at the NIH Campus (Bethesda, MD, USA) on March 29-30 2016.

The conference, supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the GAIA project, will aim to highlight progress in harmonizing safety monitoring of immunization in pregnancy and to develop consensus recommendations for a globally concerted approach.

Specifically, the conference will allow critical face-to-face review of GAIA outputs (first set of 10 case definitions, guidance for data collection, and data collection matrix) with regulators, public health agencies, manufacturers and academia in the context of current achievements and challenges in the evolving field of immunization in pregnancy. Discussions related to the GAIA project will focus on acceptability and usefulness of the outcomes in Low and Middle-Income Countries (LMIC) and on promoting their recommendation and future implementation by stakeholder organizations.
