The Guinea Bissau Expanded Project on Immunization aims to consolidate and extend the effective implementation of the TRIPLO V strategy to enhance Routine Immunization (RI) coverage in the SAB region. The objective of the support is to reinforce already existing modalities for managing COVAX delivery through the Expanded Program on Immunization (EPI) teams and facilitate the design and operations of new modalities as required to improve the effectiveness of the COVID-19 vaccination rollout. This is in line with the Gavi Board agreement to make available up to US$200 million in funding to help select country health systems respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.

On this project, Solina currently provides technical support to the Guinea Bissau EPI team and MoPH through the Management Surge program to strengthen Guinea Bissau’s EPI COVID-19 Vaccines Global Access (COVAX) efforts and improve the effectiveness of the COVID-19 vaccination rollout.

The project’s implementing partners include UNICEF, the World Bank, the Red Cross, and the World Health Organization (WHO), with funding support from Gavi, The Vaccine Alliance. The project is scheduled to be implemented from November 2023 to November 2025, spanning two years.
