SYLDOR, Marc-Henry. Vaccines and Immunisation - current situation in Haiti. Rev Clin Med Fam [online]. 2009, vol.2, n.7, pp.354-359. ISSN 2386-8201.

Immunisation is one of the great public health successes. It has saved millions of children's lives in Haiti and has given thousands more the opportunity to live a long and healthy life, to become educated, to learn to read and write, to play and move about freely without suffering. However, there are deficiencies in coverage levels, in healthcare provision, in vaccine safety and in access to the new vaccines of the Expanded Programme on Immunisation (EPI), amongst others. Vaccine coverage did not exceed 40% as a national average, reaching only 18% in some areas.

Keywords : Vaccines; Immunization Coverage.
