Civil Society Dialogue Series
March 29, 2023 All day
The Gavi CSO Constituency, Amref (the Gavi CSO Host), and PATH invite you to the first Civil Society Dialogue Series on the theme Maintain, Recover and Increase: Strengthening Civil Society Led Advocacy Towards Renewed Action for Immunisation in Africa.
Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, one in five African children did not have access to life-saving vaccines. With the pandemic, the world has lost 30 years of progress exposing millions of children to vaccine-preventable diseases. In 2021, we saw a further decline with over 25 million children missing out on essential vaccines, (i.e., zero-dose children), as did millions more throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. 2023 gives us hope, as it promises to be a year of renewal and intensification of global efforts to scale up national immunisation programmes.
The Gavi CSO Constituency and PATH, in collaboration with Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, are partnering with other like-minded institutions to strengthen civil society–led advocacy and engagement at country and regional level. This will be achieved through a series of dialogues aimed at deepening discussions and action towards improved immunisation outcomes in the Africa region.
