During the first week of May, Sustainable Immunization Financing (SIF) Senior Program Officers Devendra Gnawali and Mariya Savchuk were in Phnom Penh, Cambodia where they met with  counterparts working on immunization financing issues and organized Sabin’s fifth SIF briefing in that country.

In April 2013, an agreement was signed by Sabin and the National Institute of Hygiene and Epidemiology (NIHE), making Vietnam the newest Sustainable Immunization Financing (SIF) Program country.  To kick it off, NIHE and Sabin jointly sponsored a subnational briefing in Da Nang on 13 May.

Sabin’s Sustainable Immunization Financing Program works with eighteen African and Asian countries to find ways to increase their national immunization program investments.

The Gates Foundation recognized Sabin senior program officer Dr. Hélène Mambu-ma-Disu in particular for her work in establishing sustainable immunization financing in African countries.

Legislation

Nombreux pays avec lesquels le Programme SIF collabore ont décidé de rendre plus financièrement viable leurs programmes de vaccination par la législation. Certains de ces textes comprend une ligne budgétaire dédiée à la vaccination ou une répartition des sources de financement, tandis que d’autres abordent plus généralement ce concept.

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.
