Vision, Mandate and Guiding Principles

ITSU’s vision is to create an enabling environment for immunization stakeholders to come together to support the government’s goal of achieving 90% full immunization coverage and to sustain the performance thereafter.

When ITSU was set up, it was tasked with providing technical support and developing strategies and guidelines, standard operating procedures (SoPs) and policy documents for new vaccines and strengthening existing vaccine strategies and roll-out.
