Who We Are

About Us

The Learning Network for Countries in Transition (LNCT – pronounced “linked”) is a country-driven network dedicated to peer learning to support countries as they transition away from Gavi support to full domestic financing of their national immunization programs. There are currently 17 member countries that are within two years of entering Gavi’s accelerated transition, in accelerated transition, or within two years of fully self-financing. Members include country immunization practitioners and health and finance policymakers who are involved in financing and managing country immunization programs, as well as global, regional, and country-level partner organizations, technical facilitators, and network coordinators who manage LNCT operations. Funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and Gavi, R4D serves as LNCT’s Network Coordinator.

Country Core Groups

LNCT member country engagement is facilitated by Country Core Groups (CCGs), which are comprised of technical staff and senior level leaders committed to successful transition. CCG members may include: staff from Ministries of Health, Finance, and other planning agencies, National Immunization Technical Advisory Groups (NITAGs); and other key immunization stakeholders. The CCGs define country priorities, participate in learning activities, apply learning to problem-solving in-country, and share their transition process and experiences with the network.

Steering Committee

LNCT’s Steering Committee is comprised of representatives from Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, WHO, UNICEF, and up to six representatives from LNCT countries. The Steering Committee, which is led by a LNCT country representative, ensures that the network’s technical initiatives are aligned with country priorities and guides the strategic direction and vision of the network.
