ABSTRACT

Global Pandemic Influenza Action Plan to Increase Vaccine Supply: Progress Report 2006-2008   [open pdf - 2MB]

"The first approach of the Global Action Plan (GAP) is to encourage countries to increase their seasonal vaccine use. This will primarily reduce the disease burden of seasonal influenza infection, but will importantly provide an incentive for industry to increase its manufacturing capacity for influenza vaccines. The GAP therefore highlights the need for national immunization policies to make increased demand for seasonal influenza vaccine a priority, together with resource mobilization plans-at the regional and national levels-to secure sustained introduction. It also provides an overview of the policy and programmatic issues that need to be considered in this endeavour."
