The primary responsibility is to ensure that health receives an adequate proportion of external aid, and that this is channelled through the sector coordination mechanisms. In addition, indistrialized governments commit to:

  • Ensuring that their international policies relevant to health, and especially immunization, emphasize the needs of the world’s poorest people;
  • Ensuring that health is given adequate priority, not only as an international public good, but in the context of poverty-reduction policies;
  • Ensuring that global health challenges, including the need for wider access to immunization, receive priority in their national health research institutions;
  • Facilitating the participation of those national institutions in international efforts;
  • Supporting the strengthening of immunization services through broad sectoral approaches
