8. Systems Barriers

  • The GAVI access milestone will not be reached unless systemic barriers are addressed in countries. While GAVI cannot address all systemic issues immunization can serve as a valuable entry point.

  • It will be important to continue to seek opportunities for GAVI to align itself with the 3x5 Initiative since both are so dependent on stronger health systems.

  • UNICEF proposed to give a presentation of the “marginal budgeting for bottlenecks” tool in the context of country-led analysis of system-wide barriers and its application to immunization programmes in particular. This presentation could be given at the next Board meeting.
