Privacy Policy

Introduction

The Coalition for Life-Course Immunisation (‘CLCI’) is a diverse network of expert members and associations from civil society, representing public health, patients, health NGOs and other advocacy groups, academics and health professionals from across Europe.

CLCI members consider life-course immunisation is one of the most effective public health tools to eradicate vaccine-preventable infectious diseases. CLCI is committed to prevention of these diseases over the life-course through the promotion of the health and economic benefits of wide-scale immunisation.

This Data Privacy Policy applies to all CLCI’s activities and initiatives, including:

  • The CLCI website;
