Abstract: Year 2012 has been declared as the “Year of intensification of routine immunization” in the South-East Asia Region. This was supported by the High-Level Ministerial Meeting on Increasing and Sustaining Immunization Coverage in South-East Asia, held in August 2011 in New Delhi, and the Sixty-fourth Regional Committee meeting held in Jaipur in September 2011. At its Sixty-fourth meeting, the Regional Committee passed a resolution (SEA/RC64/R3) to report the progress towards achievements of the immunization targets adopted in the Regional Framework for Increasing and Sustaining Immunization Coverage. Since then all countries have developed plans for intensification of routine immunization and begun implementation. The High-Level Preparatory (HLP) meeting held in the Regional Office in New Delhi from 2 to 5 July 2012 reviewed the working paper and made the following recommendations. Actions by Member States (1) To maintain the progress in increasing and sustaining routine immunization coverage and secured financing for immunization programmes. (2) To build-up and strengthen institutional capacities in generating evidence when considering the adoption of new and underused vaccines, in particular burden of disease, cost–effectiveness, budget impact, and long-term programmatic and financial sustainability. (3) To ensure that policy decisions to adopt new and underused vaccines are based on the above evidence. 2 Actions by WHO-SEARO (1) To organize a Regional consultation on new vaccine introduction to be held before the end of 2012 in order to produce guidelines for Member States. (2) To provide technical support to Member States when adopting new and underused vaccines. (3) To revise the working paper in light of the recommendations of the HLP meeting for presentation to the Sixty-fifth meeting of the Regional Committee. The Regional Committee is requested to take note of the working paper, which has been revised incorporating the changes suggested by the HLP, and the recommendations of the HLP.
