Brief background: The Vaccines for Africa: Distribution and production in South Africa (SAVax), implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), supports the Department of Science and Innovation of the Republic of South Africa (DSI) in the planning and implementation of efforts to improve the populations access to quality vaccines. Through the SAVax programme, support will be provided for the advancement of technologies, human capital development and strengthening of regulatory systems for local production of quality vaccines in full alignment with the priorities of the Department of Science and Innovation.
