The Decade of Vaccines Collaboration (DoVC) initiated an online consultation capability seeking feedback on the draft Global Vaccine Action Plan (GVAP) via its website. The consultation, which complements ongoing meetings with a range of civil society organizations, governments and other stakeholders, runs 16 January – 1 February 2012. Participants are invited to register for the consultation at http://www.dovcollaboration.org/consultation/?login which leads to a password-protected area of the website where the GVAP draft is made available and an online survey is provided. The survey is focused to four questions about the GVAP draft:
- Do you feel the Global Vaccine Action Plan accurately reflects what is needed over the next decade? If not, can you provide suggestions to improve the document?
- What are the top five most transformational changes you could see in the next 10 years that would truly be “game changing?” Are they captured in the document?
- Do you feel that your stakeholder group is sufficiently and appropriately represented in the document? If not, can you provide suggestions to improve the document?
- Do you have any other comments or suggestions?
The GVAP draft will continue to evolve and will be submitted in March 2012 for World Health Assembly action when WHA meets in May, 2012.
