Global Immunization Vision and Strategy (GIVS): A Mid-term Analysis of Progress in 50 Countries

Over 70 countries developed comprehensive Multi-Year Plans (cMYPs) for implementing the Global Immunization Vision and Strategy (GIVS) for the period 2006 to 2015. This paper, published in Health Policy and Planning, describes the outcomes of a mid-point review of 50 of these national immunization program cMYPs. It provides insight into the directions countries are planning to take toward achieving the GIVS goals in terms of improving coverage with traditional vaccines, introducing new vaccines, implementing campaigns, expanding surveillance, and further integrating health services with immunization.
