On December 10, 2012 Nepal’s Rotary International District 3292 formed a Nineteen Member Executive Committee to manage and increase the size of the country’s immunization fund . The fund was established by the Rotary Club of Kathmandu North to explore domestic resources for immunization.
On January 23, Mongolia held its first ever National Parliamentary briefing on sustainable immunization financing (SIF). SIF Senior Program Officer Khongorzul Dari reports that the meeting was a big success.
Since its inception, the SIF Program objectives have been consistent: To help countries increase their immunization budgets and to pass legislation assuring sustainable government immunization financing in perpetuity.
