Cameroon is pursuing financial sustainability for its routine immunization services through new financing arrangements, budget advocacy and resource tracking. The Sabin Sustainable Immunization Financing (SIF) Program began its efforts in Cameroon in October 2008.

Immunization Program Structure

Cameroon’s Expanded Program on Immunization (EPI) is a division within the Ministry of Health (MOH).

Cameroon’s Progress to Date

Government Spending on Immunization

In the Democratic Republic of Congo’s southwestern city of Matadi, a review of the country’s Comprehensive Multi-Year Plan (cMYP) for immunization for 2011-2015 took place from August 20-25.

The latest in the series of SIF briefings for parliamentarians in Sierra Leone took place 6th June in the Hotel Bintumani Complex in Aberdeen, just outside Freetown.

During June-July, Sabin’s Sustainable Immunization Financing Program is organizing a series of legislative workshops that will take place both at sub-regional (country clusters), national and subnational levels. Eleven SIF countries are participating.
