The Immunization Inter-Agency Coordination Committee Model - Example from DR Congo
Inter-agency Coordinating Committees (ICCs) have been formed in countries to improve coordination among partners in support of immunization programs and control of vaccine-preventable diseases. Following the political & economic crises in the early 1990s in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), UN agencies, embassies & NGOs began organizing themselves to address health epidemics and diseases in the country. This umbrella committee served to mobilize resources and coordinate partners, with initial focus on the Ebola epidemic in Kikwit in 1995. This case study documents key elements & process for effective ICC collaboration and implementation of effective activities and plans. BASICS II/John Snow, Inc., 2002.
