ARIA undertakes regional consultations and analysis in focus countries to consolidate knowledge on immunisation coverage gaps and underlying factors, and strengthening activities. As of July 2020, these focus countries are:
- Papua New Guinea
- the Solomon Islands
- the Pacific Island Country group
The ARIA regional consultations are undertaken in collaboration with national governments and in-country stakeholders, including the World Health Organization, the World Bank and UNICEF; and other key immunisation partners such as Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance.
The ARIA Project Hub acts as a repository of potential projects identified during country consultations that align with ARIA’s strategic objectives. The ARIA Secretariat maintains the Project Hub and supports ARIA Country Project Teams to ensure that information on potential projects is regularly updated.
The ARIA Steering Committee regularly reviews projects from the Project Hub for potential implementation.
