Our Work With Countries
PIVI partners with low- and middle-income countries to assess and build capacity for influenza vaccine programs. Our goal is to create sustainable positive change in communities and countries around the world.
We also work in partnership with the CDC to provide technical assistance to Ministries of Health in creating policies around influenza vaccination, as well as supporting the assessment and creation of pandemic plans.
This work is often an unfolding process. PIVI and the CDC meet country partners where they currently are on this journey. From assessments to skills strengthening, our job is to create a sustainable, seasonal flu vaccination program that undergirds pandemic preparedness plans. All of our country partners receive the technical support they need to ensure success. And, partnerships are specifically tailored to help each country reach its goals. CDC is the primary provider of technical support to strengthen capacity.

PIVI Technical Assistance
PIVI partners to provide technical support to countries that may or may not be implementing routine seasonal national influenza programs. The goal of this work is to strengthen a country’s immunization infrastructure and capacity, ultimately making a country readier to respond to infectious disease threats.
Through technical assistance, PIVI supports country workflow related to developing or strengthening pandemic preparedness and seasonal influenza vaccination programs. PIVI may assist with work such as:
- Estimation of disease and economic burden of influenza
- Development of acceptability surveys, communication campaigns, and training initiatives
- Vaccine program implementation and evaluation activities, including adverse event and vaccine coverage monitoring
- National Immunization Technical Advisory Group (NITAG) support and strengthening
