More than 70 epidemiologists called on the UN and the governments of all world powers to start the fight against the anti-vaccine movement.
The ideas that followers of the movement spread, according to expert owls, are false and misinforming. Scientists have published the text of the appeal in a letter to the Journal of Health Communication.
Epidemiologists have expressed concern that WHO considers the rejection of vaccination as the main problem of modern health care. According to expert owls, anti-vaccinations create an artificial crisis. Doctors intend to fight against false ideas until confidence in vaccination is restored.
