An analysis of the current exposure to critical risks to the programme indicates that some countries (continue to) have insufficient capacity and capabilities to manage immunisation programmes. This is one of the top risks to the Alliance potentially impacting the achievement of Gavi mission and strategic goals.

  • Expanded Programme of Immunisation (EPI) Management partners – a long term embedded peer-coach in the Ministry of Health (MoH) with strong managerial/ health experience;
  • Enhance EPI performance management through data-driven tools and technologies, performance dialogues and follow up action;

  • Twinning approach or south-south collaboration between two countries in order to transfer knowledge, skills and technology to enhance programme management capacity;
  • Enhance functionality of coordination forums (Health Sector/ Inter agency Coordination Committees);
  • Operational guidelines to ensure adequate EPI team capacity.
