7 Feb Kampala, Uganda - Ten members of parliament (MPs) from the Ugandan National Assembly met today for a Sabin-sponsored briefing on the country's immunization financing. Following a presentation by Sabin Senior Program Officer Diana Kizza Mugenzi, participants discussed advocacy and legislative strategies and agreed to form a core group that will create a parliamentary immunization forum. The MPs will assess immunization program performance in their home districts.

Since late 2008, the Sustainable Immunization Financing (SIF) Program has been operating in twelve African, and three Asian pilot countries.

A key message in our Sustainable Immunization Financing (SIF) Program work is that countries need to reduce their dependencies by appropriating their routine immunization programs.

The Sabin Sustainable Immunization Financing (SIF) Program was on the agenda at a symposium hosted by the Penn Center for Vaccine Ethics and Policy.

Sierra Leone moved closer to achievement of both the Global Immunization Vision and Strategy and Millennium Development Goals related to poverty-reduction and improved health outcomes when the nation adopted the “Reach Every Child (RED)” approach to healthcare last fall.
