Senegal EPI cMYP 2012-2016
Jul 5, 2011
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.
