Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
28 - 29 March 2011
The Sabin Vaccine Institute hosted the "First Sabin Vaccine Institute Colloquium on Sustainable Immunization Financing (SIF)" from March 28-29, 2011.
Delegates from thirteen of the SIF Program's fifteen pilot countries gathered for the first global health conference dedicated to sustainable immunization financing. They addressed various programmatic, financial, policy and legislative hurdles that must be overcome if the countries are to internalize their routine immunization program costs and reduce their external partner dependency. The delegates identified their action points going forward in the Addis Ababa Declaration.
