Procurement on behalf of countries receiving support from
Ten countries received support from GAVI/VF for the introduction
and/or continuation of DTP-HepB vaccine, 11 countries received
support for DTP-HepB+Hib vaccine, three countries received
support for DTP-Hib vaccine, 28 received support for Hepatitis
B vaccine, and 17 received support for yellow fever vaccine.
The availability of combination vaccines was limited during
the first half of 2004, but improved in the second half of
the year. Based on ongoing discussions with manufacturers,
UNICEF foresees that the supply situation will continue to
improve, and that additional countries that would like to
introduce these vaccines will be able to do so in 2005-2006.
