Abstract
The aim was to assess the sustainability of the expansion of the Expanded Programme on Immunisation (EPI) in the Gambia. This is a rare policy approach to assess immunization programmes in countries where the sustainability of the introduction of new vaccines is particularly important. The review of the literature in this study has demonstrated that while some tools may prove useful for measuring the component of funding sustainability of immunization programmes, they were insufficient with regard to questions on other aspects of sustainability. To address these issues of sustainability sufficiently in the study, a stakeholder analysis questionnaire was identified from the literature for adoption. Selected indicators of financial sustainability in the literature, in addition to country- specific indicators, were incorporated in the stakeholder analysis questionnaire. Also, a resource map questionnaire was developed, based on the National Health Accounts methodology, to complement the stakeholder analysis tool. This approach provided qualitative information about stakeholders? opinion concerning the issue of whether to use additional resources for improving efficiency in the supply chain rather than introducing new vaccines to determine whose interests should be taken into account, but more importantly to assess where stakeholders think the system works and where it doesn?t work, and if different parties have contradictory incentives. It also provided detailed information on the flow and uses of resources within the immunisation system, in addition to data that focus on questions of power, relationships, processes and accountability in the EPI. Thus, this combination of methods can be useful for systematic assessment of the sustainability of EPI systems and the efficiency of having multiple organisations running programmes.
