The NGO representative to the GAVI Board acts as a liaison between GAVI and NGOs, representing the views and concerns of each side, while working to improve immunization and NGO participation in strengthening immunization. To enhance NGO participation in immunization activities, the Sierra Leone Red Cross works to:

  • Strengthen NGO participation in Regional Working Groups (RWGs) and Inter-agency Coordinating Committees (ICCs).
  • Expand existing NGO activities to include the participation of local, in-country NGOs.
  • Identify and assist in the development of tools to assist NGOs in immunization and GAVI related activities.
  • Facilitate greater cooperation and understanding between NGOs and governments.
  • Assist interested regional NGOs in activities targeted to varying economic, political and social climates.
  • Maintain contact with over the 150 international PVOs/NGOs to keep them informed and engaged in NGO activities relating to immunization and GAVI.

More information about the Sierra Leone Red Cross Society can be found at the Internation Red Cross/Red Crescent Federation website.
