Seth Berkley visits DR Congo to view progress on immunisation

The twofold objective of Dr Berkley’s visit to the Democratic Republic of Congo was to gain a better understanding of what drives increases in immunisation coverage in a large fragile country and to advise on the scaling-up of pneumococcal vaccines.
