The initiative seeks to strengthen the folder immunization program in the country, still recovering from the 2010 earthquake

With action, Brazil totals sending only six million vaccines in 2012, and 8.7 million since 2010, when it began the tripartite cooperation between Brazil-Cuba-Haiti, to restructure and strengthen the Haitian health system.

According to Health Minister Alexandre Padilha, "the existence of a strengthened surveillance is vital for the functioning of the health system of any nation. And it is even more important in countries that have experienced a critical moment, as is the case in Haiti he said, adding, it is essential to develop ongoing control activities, so keep the Haitian population protected against diseases easily preventable, for example, by vaccine, complements the minister.
