We are pleased to share with you the meeting report from the recent CSO Asia regional meeting, which took place in Dhaka, Bangladesh from 27-28 February, 2017, hosted by BRAC. CSO representatives from Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Indonesia, Myanmar, Nepal, Papua New Guinea, and Sri Lanka attended. In addition, colleagues from Pakistan participated virtually in a number of sessions.  

During the meeting, participants identified common immunisation challenges across their respective countries, which became the backbone of a suggested roadmap for future CSO engagement and cooperation in the region. The five main areas for further collaboration are:

• Sustainable financing for immunization
• Equitable coverage
• Political will and advocacy
• Parental education and card retention
• Increasing CSO capacity
