Strengthening routine immunization in Haut-Lomami and Tanganyika provinces

Since 2017, the Democratic republic of Congo (DRC) has worked to halt an outbreak of vaccine-derived polio virus type 2 (cVDPV2) in several of its South-Eastern provinces. Low immunity of children in Haut-Lomami and Tanganyika provinces is indicative of low routine immunization coverage and the risk of the spread of polio to other areas. These two provinces represent some of the lowest immunization coverage rates in the country and the importance of strengthening these health systems.

PATH and partners are working to contribute to the interruption of cVDPV2 transmission in DRC by improving the quality of the outbreak response and ensuring sustainable routine immunization financing and immunization systems are strengthened through policy advocacy activities. This newsletter is produced quarterly to highlight program work related to these objectives.
