Global Health Security Agenda (GHSA) is a multi-partner and multi-country initiative that targets to reduce health threats from infectious diseases outbreaks through prevention, timely detection and response strategies. Uganda benefited from all 11 action packages of the GHSA including the immunizations action package. The main objective of the GHSA immunizations project is to prevent avoidable outbreaks of measles and other Vaccine Preventable Diseases (VPDs) through strengthening routine immunization systems and building capacity for timely investigations of and response to measles outbreaks including molecular surveillance. The project started in May 2016.
