Asbarez: International Agencies, Health Ministry Join Forces to Strengthen Immunization in Armenia

NEW YORK – The Ministry of Health and Social Affairs of Armenia has formed an Interagency Immunization Coordinating Committee to ensure that support to the National Immunization Program is timely and well coordinated. Participants in the March 30 meeting of the ICC in Yerevan included UNICEF, WHO, World Bank, USAID, as well as members of an interagency mission to Armenia, March 28 to April 1, representing partners in the Global Alliance for Vaccine and Immunizations.

GAVI Mission partners included the Bill and Melinda Gates Children’s Vaccine Program, WHO headquarters, UNICEF regional office (Europe), and Armenia Immunization 2000 (AI2K) a new immunization initiative supported by the Ani and Narod Memorial Fund (ANMF) in New York.

“The ICC meeting was a critical first step in stimulating an open dialogue on immunization with the Ministry and partners on the ground in Armenia to decide on the roles of each in a spirit of cooperation and teamwork. While coordinating so many partners presents a challenge, we hope the shared objectives of the ICC will push this noble initiative forward,” said Seda Aghamianz, Program Manager, AI2K.
