On 25 -26 September, immunization members from the Middle East and North and Sub-Saharan Africa joined in Durban for the IAIM Inaugural Regional Meeting. This meeting was an unprecedented opportunity for members to share their experiences and challenges with supporting national and regional immunization programs. They also engaged in peer-to-peer dialogues and networking sessions to exchange best practices and lessons learned in order to improve the impact of their programs.
“The inaugural meeting is a notable milestone for immunization programs and indeed history in the making. For the first time, immunization managers have their own association to exchange their experiences and share knowledge on management issues that are important for organizing and implementing successful vaccination programs,” said Dr. K. O. Antwi-Agyei, immediate past national program manager of Ghana’s Expanded Programme on Immunization (EPI) and member of IAIM’s ad hoc Governing Council.
