Responsible entity: Regional Working Groups (RWG)
Completed by: December 2005
Total budget: $1,212,000

Target description and how it will help reach GAVI milestones

Coordination of partner’s efforts is important for achieving GAVI goals.

ACCESS MILESTONE: Improving coordination of immunization efforts at regional and country level is key to more effective and efficient support of operations.

Justification for selection of activities

The GAVI Board Sub-Group Review of Task Forces (July 2003) concluded that RWGs provide an important forum for networking, coordination, consensus building, and advocacy at the regional and sub-regional level, and bridge for information flow between country and global levels. The Board Sub-Group recommended that to fulfill these functions effectively GAVI should provide limited financial support for coordination and consultation roles. It was emphasized that RWGs should not have implementing functions, but rather help coordinate implementation activities of partners.
