Workshop on developing Evidence-based recommendation

Burkina Faso
11 February 2016

The NITAG of Burkina Faso (GTCV Burkina) was created by ministerial decree on July 3rd, 2014. Members of the NITAG had an orientation workshop in April 2015 and developed a work plan for 2015 - 2016, which includes 5 objectives with 25 activities to reach the two national priorities:

  • To develop recommendation notes for the introduction of MenAfriVac in routime immunization
  • To develop recommendation notes to agree on vaccination outside EPI schedule

One of the objectives include reinforcing NITAG's capacities. This will be achieved through the training of the members on developing evidence-based recommendation notes. The workshop is currently being held from 10 to 12 February in Koudogou, Burkina and facilitated by the SIVAC.

A major factor in this rise is an increase in critical security incidents that have dramatically affected the ability to identify, follow up and vaccinate contacts successfully. This context challenges the implementation of ring vaccination based on the identification of contacts and contacts of contacts, as recommended by SAGE in April 2017 and confirmed by SAGE during its April 2019 meeting. Further, a potential vaccine shortage may manifest in case the outbreak expands further and/or is prolonged.
