The Key Topics Emerged Were: 

•    There is a need to ensure all the essential vaccines that have the maximum impact on preventing childhood mortality and morbidity are administered. 

•    Going forward, a certain set of vaccines which cannot be a part of the Universal Immunization Programme should be made available to the public through the private sector. 

•    The overarching recommendation is that- if affordability is not a concern, all vaccines from both government and private sector should be administered. 

•    Health education for food and water borne diseases, hand washing and maintaining personal hygiene is a non negotiable for keeping children healthy.
