Yellow fever vaccine, injection materials (syringes, and safe disposal boxes), and vaccination cards for the campaign have been provided by the International Coordinating Group (ICG) on Yellow Fever Vaccine Provision. The ICG—which is chaired by WHO and includes UNICEF, the International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, and Médecins Sans Frontières—works with the GAVI Alliance and vaccine producers to ensure a stockpile of vaccines is available in the event of outbreaks like the one in Darfur.
