    Strenghtening NITAGs through the Partnership for Influenza Vaccine Introduction

    07.11.2017

    The Partnership for Influenza Vaccine Introduction (PIVI), based at The Task Force for Global Health (TFGH), is an innovative public/private program that partners with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Ministries of Health, corporate partners and others to create sustainable, routine, seasonal influenza vaccination programs in low- and middle-income countries.   PIVI’s goal is to create routine, seasonal influenza vaccination programs to protect communities from the impacts of both seasonal and pandemic influenza. Working with countries’ Ministries of Health, as well as with other technical collaborators, PIVI supports capacity building for NITAGs to make evidence-based vaccine policy decision making.  These activities are coordinated with NITAG strengthening work carried out through other projects and cooperative funding agreements between countries and CDC’s Influenza and Global Immunization Divisions.  The work is also closely coordinated with NITAG focal points in WHO regional and country offices.

These benefits outweigh the small risk of a serious complication from vaccination, according to the Health Council.
