Cote d’Ivoire

WHO Region: African region World Bank Income Group: Lower-middle-income country Gavi Co-financing Status: Preparatory Transition Immunisation System Highlights:

  • To improve access to immunisation services, in 2017, all facilities providing immunisation implemented fixed, outreach, and mobile immunisation strategies, and the government built 136 new facilities providing immunisation.
  • The government set up a protected, secure budget line for the purchase of vaccines. Additionally, provisions were made in 2016 to allow vaccines to be paid for in advance and for Gavi co-payments to be made at the beginning of the year. As a result, there were no stock outs at the country level in 2017.
  • Cote d’Ivoire worked alongside Gavi to develop their transition plan using a new theory of change tool to better define both their immunisation programme challenges and the activities to achieve a successful transition.
