Peru Threshold Program

The Peru Threshold Program's end date was September 30, 2012. The Threshold Program is now closed.

The two-year $35.6 million Peru Threshold Program, signed June 9, 2008, sought to increase immunization rates of children in rural areas against diseases, including measles, diphtheria, pertussis and tetanus, in eight targeted regions. The program also sought to assist Peru’s Ministry of Health in strengthening information and vaccination management systems. The program will help Peru combat corruption by working with the judicial branch, law enforcement, the ombudsman and controller’s offices and civil society organizations to improve internal controls and simplify administrative processes to reduce opportunities for corruption.
