Application Form for Gavi NVS Support Submitted by The Government of Lao People’s Democratic Republic
The Government of Lao PDR, after intensive deliberations in the country’s NITAG and ICC and with the consent of all immunisation partners, herewith submits its application for Gavi support for HPV and rotavirus vaccines, to be added to the country’s National Immunisation Program (NIP) schedule in late 2019. In discussion with the Gavi Secretariat, Lao PDR was invited to submit this application for the total time span of future Gavi support, i.e. up until and including the year 2022 (four years, including the year of introduction of the vaccines). It is to be noted that the present cMYP spans the period 2016 to 2020 and is in the process of being updated for the period 2018 to 2022. At the same time, the Gavi Transition Plan, recently endorsed by the Government of Lao PDR, covers the period 2017 to 2021 (the end of the ‘regular’ Gavi support period).
