Background of the Project
Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, is a public-private partnership committed to saving children’s lives and protecting people’s health by increasing equitable use of vaccines in lower-income countries. The Alliance brings together developing country and donor governments, the World Health Organization, UNICEF, the World Bank, the vaccine industry, technical agencies, civil society, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and other private sector partners. Since 2000, Gavi has contributed to the immunisation of nearly 640 million children and the prevention of more than 9 million future deaths.
The primary objective of this engagement is to place a Program Delivery Unit (PDU) in the EPI department to strengthen the performance management system of the EPI, to increase the coverage and equity of EPI programs in the short-term, and to increase the sustainability of EPI programs in the long-term. Gavi’s new five–year strategy seeks to achieve the immunization of 300 million children in developing countries with the objective of saving 5-6 million lives. As part of this strategy, Gavi has launched the Leadership, Management and Coordination (LMC) assistance program to strengthen its EPI program teams across various countries. LMC will embed teams of one to three members (Program Delivery Units (PDU)) to strengthen management processes and drive forward immunization activities.
In its problem-solving role, the PDU will support key EPI program priorities that lead to a specific set of targets, and develop solutions and action plans that outline how the targets would be achieved. In its implementation role, the PDU ensures performance is being reviewed against set targets, advises EPI/MoH on necessary adjustments for specific outcomes that are not on track to meet their targets, plays a coordinating role by being a “go-to-body” for immunization stakeholders with overlapping activities, and recommends technical expertise to fill gaps in ministries having implementation challenges.
