Sri Lanka launches National assessment report on Implementation of GSPA-PHI
The Ministry of Health and Indigenous Medicine of Sri Lanka, in collaboration with WHO Country Office for Sri Lanka, launched the National Assessment Report on Implementation of Global Strategy and Plan of Action on Public Health, Innovation, and Intellectual Property on 13th Friday 2015 at the Hotel Kingsbury, Colombo.
Since 2002, Sri Lanka has received several kinds of support from GAVI including new vaccine support for introduction of Hepatitis B and Pentavalent vaccines, introduction of AD syringes to ensure injection safety, and HSS support. Currently the only remaining support from GAVI is for pentavalent vaccine under a co-financing mechanism which too will end by December 2015 as the country graduates from GAVI support. The graduation criterion is decided by the level of GNI per capita.
