Pertussis control strategies 2015: A consistent approach for New Zealand

In April 2015 the Ministry of Health held a Workshop at the University of Auckland to bring together expertise and those with experience from this epidemic to discuss pertussis disease control strategies and a consistent approach for New Zealand. Gains have been made in the infant primary immunisation series, but pertussis is still a major public health issue. The Ministry of Health wanted to assess the available data and strategies with the aim of minimising the impact of future outbreaks on those most vulnerable. The Ministry will use the recommendations from the Workshop to develop a consistent approach to pertussis control in New Zealand.
