Established by ministerial decree in June 2015, the Togo NITAG was only officially launched in January 2017. The work plan for the year 2017 is already quite full. 6 recommendation notes need to be developed on national priority topics, including one on MenA vaccine and another one on Hepatitis B at birth.
