Launch of African Vaccination Week


The Republic of Equatorial Guinea is celebrating its 8th edition on a continental level of African Vaccination Week. Salomón Nguema Owono oversaw the launch event, which was attended by representatives from the WHO, Rosa María Soares, and UNICEF, Antero Almeida de Pina.

During the ceremony, the Minister for Health said that it was an opportunity for members of the United Nations to focus their joint efforts to guarantee quality and performance to the Extended Immunisation Programme, and face challenges to increasing the cover of vaccination.

Equatorial Guinea is one of the few countries on the African continent that purchases vaccines under the Extended Immunisation Programme using its own funds.
