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; some of the ways we do this include:

  • Estimations 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
  • Tailoring current support tools and technical assistance to COVID-19 response, and any future pandemic response.
