Communication for Development (C4D) plays a crucial role in improving child immunization, by fostering understanding of childhood diseases, creating demand for services and acceptance of the vaccines. In recognition of this important role, UNICEF Tanzania assists the Ministry of Health to have effective C4D to support national Immunization and Vaccine Development Program (IVD) and disease outbreak campaigns. The recent Polio outbreak in Sudan, South Sudan, Ethiopia, Somalia raises particular concerns, because it was caused by circulating Vaccine-Derived Polio Virus (cVDPV), putting neighboring countries including Tanzania at risk of re-emergence or importation of the polioviruses due to the existence of pockets of unimmunized/under-immunized children. In addition, the introduction of a novel vaccine, nOPV2, requires technical capacity that is currently not available in country as this is a new vaccine. As a key partner of the GPEI, UNICEF has the mandate of providing assistance to ensure an evidence-based, fast track and effective C4D response whenever a polio outbreak is confirmed, as well as the support to strengthen routine immunization.
