We and our partners are committed to increasing immunizations in Africa so that life-saving vaccines reach those who need them the most. We achieve this by raising the profile of immunization on policymakers’ agenda, promoting sustainable resource allocation for immunization at both national and international levels, strengthening coalitions and increasing demand for quality immunization services. We know that major changes won’t happen without the support and engagement of political leaders and local communities. So, we work at all levels to ensure that individual and collective action is combined with political acts to create long-lasting impact.
Our work on immunization spans different geographies, diseases and actors. Over the years we have worked with local mayors to encourage them to advocate among their peers for routine immunization; created campaigns to empower communities to take simple, proven measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19; and worked with First Ladies to promote increased routine immunization and funding, and more.
