20 Bureau Régional de lOMS pour lAfrique / WHO Regional Office for Africa 20 Priorities for measles control in AFR Continue efforts to improve routine EPI coverage: –RED approach Continue advocating for more local resource mobilization for SIAs Capitalize on the opportunity for integration to ensure synergy – planning, coordination, funding…
