Country monitoring and reporting requirements

Annual progress reports

The due date for receipt of annual progress reports from countries receiving support from The Vaccine Fund has been changed to 28 May 2004 in order to better align GAVI reporting with other immunization reporting. As in the past, the ICC must endorse the reports prior to submission.

The monitoring team of the Independent Review Committee (IRC) reviews the reports and provides recommendations for approval to the GAVI Board. Click here for a summary of the most recent IRC review of progress reports and to download available progress reports. The full IRC report (Word, 210K) is also available. (This report also includes recommendations on financial sustainability plans.)

Financial sustainability plans

Click here for a list of countries that are required to submit an FSP in 2004.

Development of a financial sustainability plan during the second year of Vaccine Fund support is a requirement for all countries. Training workshops will be conducted from February to June; the concerned countries will be contacted directly with further details. Signed financial sustainability plans must be received at the Secretariat by 30 November 2004 - they will be reviewed by a new team of the Independent Review Committee (IRC).

The Data Quality Audit (DQA)

Click here for a list of countries that are required to conduct a DQA in 2004.

The DQA has been developed by WHO and helps to evaluate the quality of a country's health information system and verify the accuracy of reported administrative data. DQAs are conducted in countries receiving immunization services support during the first or second year of funding. For more information go here.
