Rwanda EPI cMYP 2011-2015
The overall goal of the national EPI is to contribute to the improved well-being of the Rwandan people through reduction of child morbidity and mortality due to vaccine preventable diseases. Created in 1978, EPI in Rwanda became operational in 1980.

Ethiopia EPI cMYP 2011-2015
The Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia is the second most populous country in sub Saharan Africa with an estimated population of approximately 79.2 million people and the tenth largest by area with its 1.1 million square kilometres, . The IMR is 77/1,000 in 2005, it is still among the highest in the world (DHS 2005). The health status of Ethiopian children is very poor as attested by the death of an estimated 472,000 under five children each year. Of every 100 children in Ethiopia, 14 do not live to celebrate their fifth birthday mostly due to preventable causes.

The Expanded Programme on Immunization was initiated in Nigeria in 1979 as the main strategy aimed at controlling childhood killer diseases, through provision of vaccines and immunization. The overall goal of the programme is to improve immunization coverage on a sustainable basis and reduce disease burden in all communities in Nigeria, while using immunization as platform to strengthen the overall primary health care delivery system.

Senegal EPI cMYP 2012-2016
Vaccinations have occupied a very important place in Senegal’s national health policy since the adoption of primary health services with the integration of expanded program for immunisation (EPI) for vaccine preventable diseases.
Senegal became involved in 2000 with relaunching EPI following a difficult period marked by reduced immunisation coverage and the resurgence of diseases such as measles. Following the EPI review of 2000 and the creation of the strategic plans for 2001-2005 and 2007-2011, a certain number of actions and measures were taken.

Liberia EPI cMYP 2011-2015
Liberia is signatory to the achievement of international and regional goals and targets, particularly the Millennium Development Goal to reduce the under-five mortality rate by two-thirds by 2015, the attainment of a routine immunization coverage of 90% nationally with at least 80% coverage in every district and the reduction of measles mortality rate by 90% as compared to the 2000 levels by 2015. This includes extending the benefits of new and underused vaccines to all children; the integration of vitamin A & mebendazole into routine immunization in 2011.

Ghana EPI cMYP 2010-2014
The comprehensive multi‐year plan (cMYP) is the medium term plan for the Expanded Programme on Immunization (EPI) in Ghana. As expected, it provides the strategic direction of the immunization programme for the period. The cMYP is always prepared in consonance with the 5‐year strategic plan of the health sector. The current cMYP (2007‐2011) had to be revised to 2014 to accommodate the plans to introduce three new vaccines –pneumococcal, rotavirus and second dose measles. After the development of the next health sector 5‐year plan which is from 2012‐2016, the cMYP will be revised and aligned to the health sector plan and period.
