On 8 December 2016 the X National Meeting “Initiative for Health and Vaccination” took place in Sofia. The project “Initiative for Health and vaccination” is implemented under the patronage of the Parliamentary Committee on Health and the Council of Ministers (National Council for Cooperation on Ethnic and Integration Issues). The Initiative partners include the Ministry of Health, Ministry of Labor and Social Policy, State Agency for Child Protection, the National Association of GPs in Bulgaria, "National Network of the mediators in Bulgaria" and GlaxoSmithKline.

The Initiative began in March 2010, regarding the epidemiological situation with the measles outbreak in Bulgaria that affected mainly the hard to reach communities in Bulgaria due to gaps in their immunization coverage. For 12 months there are more than 24,000 registered cases and 24 deaths. 92% of the reported cases of infection are in the Roma population. During 2010 and 2011 four national and eighteen regional meetings were organized to explain the role of the Initiative and to educate the Health mediators, the GPs and the RHIs (Regional Health Inspectorates are part of the Ministry of health’s structures on regional level).
