Immunization is undoubtedly one of the most successful and cost effective public health interventions of all time. Since its inception in Africa in the late 1970s, the Expanded Program on Immunization (EPI) has undergone major transformations. From the six diseases targeted by EPI in the early 70s, new and unde-used vaccines have been included in the EPI schedule in most countries in Africa. New financial mechanisms, renewed commitments by governments, donors and regional bodies, new vaccine and technology and the eradication of polio finally in sight augur a bright future for immunization in Africa. What have been and what will be the transformative forces for routine immunization in Africa? This is what the supplement "The Future Of Immunization in Africa" is about.
