On Tuesday 23.10.2012 Wayne A. Madden, the president of Lions International (headquarters in Oak Brook, Illinois, USA) together with the Minister of Health Mars di Bartolomeo has paid an official visit to the World Health Organisation Reference Center for the European Region in Luxembourg located at the Department of Immunology / CRP-Santé, to learn about the progress of the worldwide MEASLES ELIMINATION INITIATIVE. One of the most important world-wide activities of the LIONS INTERNATIONAL is its contribution to and participation in the MEASLES ELIMINATION INITIATIVE of the World Health Organisation (WHO). The MEASLES ELIMINATION INITIATIVE is a consortium of international organisations including e.g. UNICEF, the American Red Cross, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the United Nations Foundation and others which fund under the auspices of the WHO the eradication of measles and (congenital) rubella throughout the world. LIONS INTERNATIONAL is one of the prominent players in this consortium. To reach the target of eradicating measles, the WHO relies on a world-wide Network of National Laboratories, essentially one in each country of the world. These National Laboratories are supported by Regional Reference Laboratories on each continent. The Department of Immunology  , CRP-Santé/LNS in Luxembourg is a Regional Reference Center responsible for 21 countries in Europe and the New Independent States (the former Soviet Republics). In addition, the Department of Immunology, CRP-Santé/LNS in Luxembourg is one of the WHO’s three Collaborating Centers for Research on Measles. Thus, the Department of Immunology is a very prominent player in the Measles Initiative.
