ERIC MAFUTA: Hi, my name is Eric Mafuta. I’m an associate professor at the Kinshasa School of Public Health. I’m the facilitator of this session on fundamentals of planning and management. Thank you for joining me. As you know, the objective of the Vaccine Nation program is to deliver the correct amount of vaccine to every child in the correct place at the correct time given correctly at the correct temperature. Such a program requires detailed and accurate planning and management of resources and activity. In this session, I will introduce you to the basics of planning and management as performed during the polio initiative for setting up the program for success.
