Madagascar celebrates the introduction of pneumococcal vaccines
Madagascar marked the introduction of pneumococcal vaccines into its national immunisation programme with a high level ceremony in the coastal town of Vatomandry attended by the Prime Minister, donors, health workers and local communities.
In March 2011, GAVI, the World Bank and UNICEF in consultation with the Advance Market Commitment (AMC) donors have updated the AMC Legal Agreements drawing on lessons learnt from the first year of implementation of the pneumococcal AMC.
The revisions are designed to ensure greater efficiency in the operation of the pneumococcal AMC.
