Annual Report 2016

Immunisation is one of the most cost-effective and successful public health interventions in the history of mankind. Since it was launched in 1995, the Expanded Programme on Immunisation (EPI) of South Africa (EPI-SA) has closely followed World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines, and currently provides free immunisation against 11 vaccine-preventable diseases (VPDs).

Annual Report 2015

Vaccination, the most cost-effective healthcare intervention preventing morbidity and mortality associated with vaccine-preventable diseases (VPDs), has been estimated to prevent between two and three million deaths annually. The role and input of universities responsible for research, education and training of healthcare workers (HCWs) in the prevention and control of VPDs, cannot be underestimated. The South African Vaccination and Immunisation Centre (SAVIC) was established in 2003 as a network of partners in the field of vaccination and immunisation.
