Timor-Leste - Sri Lanka Twinning Arrangement for institutional Strengthening in immunization programme management in Timor- Leste

Strong immunization systems save lives. In recognition of this fact, Timor-Leste, Sri Lanka, WHO and Gavi, the vaccine alliance, signed a two-year ‘twinning’ agreement that will help strengthen immunization systems and knowledge-sharing between the two South-East Asia Region countries.

At the WHO South-East Asia Regional Committee side event, Timor-Leste Director-General of Health Services Dr Odete de Silva Viegas thanked Sri Lanka, WHO and Gavi for their support, outlining how immunization is key to Timor-Leste’s development trajectory: “When we invest in vaccines, we are investing in the future of the nation,” she said.
