Sustaining Immunization Efforts Under Health Reform: Challenges for Africa

In this paper Dr. Khadija Ali Msambichaka looks at the current state of EPI programs in Africa and the effects that health care reform is having on them. She cautions that health care reforms must be implemented carefully to ensure that immunization benefits are achieved and sustained, and she offers practical suggestions for implementing health care reform in a manner that will strengthen national immunization programs. Dr. Msambichaka's paper was originally presented at the November 1998 CVI Consultative Group meeting held in Geneva.
