Stories from the Countries

We currently have regional field staff providing direct technical support to countries in Francophone West Africa, Anglophone West Africa, East and South Africa, and Central Asia. Hear from some of our epidemiologists and country partners.

Boniface Kitungulu | East and South Africa

“Now is the time to be communicating with communities about what to expect and the importance of getting the vaccine when the time comes. Like many countries, there are groups in Kenya and other East African countries that are concerned about getting vaccinated, so we want to be proactive and start having those conversations and sharing the facts with citizens.”

Based in Kenya, Boniface Kitungulu is the regional epidemiologist for CoVIP’s Eastern and Southern Africa country partners. Kitungulu works with countries like Kenya, Uganda, Eswatini, and Zambia to develop or adapt national immunization programs.

Shalkar Adambekov | Central Asia

“What would be a whole department with many employees in other countries like the U.S. is one person doing all of those activities in places like Uzbekistan. Here in Central Asia, they need the financial support first and then the technical assistance to build out the infrastructure for their vaccination campaigns.”

Based in Kazakhstan, Shalkar Adambekov is the regional epidemiologist for CoVIP’s Central Asia country partners. He works with countries like Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, and Kyrgyzstan to develop or adapt national immunization programs.
