To assess the implementation progress and performance of Gavi’s support for new and underutilized vaccines and health system strengthening efforts, as well as its contribution to improved immunization coverage and equity, Gavi countries engage in regular review processes — either joint appraisals (JAs) or country engagement framework (CEF) reviews. This report provides an overview of the MCSP country experiences during the May–December 2017 Gavi JAs and CEF processes.

This report is intended to summarize MCSP staff experience and feedback on the JA and CEF processes; it does not present views of other stakeholders who may have also participated in the JA. This report centers on the process itself, from MCSP’s perspective, and highlights key strengths and challenges, then makes recommendations that could be helpful in improving the overall process in the future.
