Abstract

Highlights •Every country which has an ambition for a strong national immunization programme should benefit from a NITAG. •Process indicators related to NITAGs have been included in the WHO/UNICEF Joint Reporting Form since the 2011 form which collected data for 2010. •By the end of 2012, 63 (33%) countries (including 38 developing countries) reported a NITAG that met six process indicators, representing a 47% increase compared with 2010. •A special approach needs to be explored to allow small countries to benefit from sub-regional or other countries advisory groups. •Progress needs to be accelerated to reach the target of the Global Vaccine Action Plan (GVAP).
