Azerbaijan highlights progress towards elimination of measles and rubella in European Immunization Week
Alma Sokolovic-Rasmussen posted a topic in EIW 2016 activitiesThirty-two countries in the European Region have interrupted transmission of endemic measles and/or rubella as of 2014, according to the conclusions of the European Regional Verification Commission for Measles and Rubella Elimination (RVC).

This progress and momentum toward elimination in the entire European Region will be the focus of European Immunization Week, taking place 24-30 April.
