  2. WHO/Europe is currently accepting applications for the position of Programme Manager, Vaccine-preventable Diseases and Immunization. https://careers.who.int/careersection/ex/jobdetail.ftl?job=1802749&lang=en The closing date for applications is 30 June 2018. Please pass this information on to your colleagues and networks.
  3. I would like to interview an expert from Bulgaria for Vaccines Today. We have published interviews this year on Greece, Romania and Italy but have not done much about Bulgaria - despite getting a lot of traffic on our website and Facebook page from Bulgaria. (We had a couple of pieces about Roma communities in Bulgaria (see here and here) a while ago but nothing recently.) Looking at the latest ECDC data, it is clear that Bulgaria has been dealing with measles outbreaks. However, it's not at all as bad as Romania. Perhaps they are doing something right? Or is MMR uptake low and an outbreak is anticipated? Either way, it is a potentially interesting story. If you are an expert in Bulgaria - or you can put me in touch with one - please don't hesitate.
