The Advanced Immunization Management (AIM) e-Learning website launched a new module on 7 October to support the World Health Organization's computer-based Measles Strategic Planning (MSP) tool. The MSP was developed to help countries develop measles vaccination strategies to meet their measles control goals given resource limitations. The Measles Strategic Planning tool is ready for use – loaded with country-specific data that can be updated by the user. The module can be used to: Serve as a technical resource about measles epidemiology and vaccination strategies.Download WHO’s MSP tool and guide users on how to run the tool and interpret its results. Inform and defend a measles vaccination strategy based on current population susceptibility to measles and vaccination cost and management limitations.Help decision-makers and donors compare the estimated costs and impacts of different measles control strategies at the national level and, for India, at the state level.Access resources for further study in measles control.Developed by WHO, PATH and partners, the MSP module provides information on disease characteristics and epidemiology that is critical for formulating effective measles control strategies. Users can review the costs and practical implications of measles vaccination programs and test their understanding with a case study using the WHO Measles Strategic Planning Tool. The e-Learning module and planning tool are primarily aimed at immunization program managers but will also be useful for country level program officers, health care providers, public health educators, and public health managers. The module on Strategic Planning for Measles Control can be found on http://aim.path.org/en/measles/index.html The module will also be available shortly on CD upon request to [email=info@aim.path.org]info@aim.path.org[/email]. The broader Advanced Immunization Management e-Leaning site also has modules on: Meningitis A vaccine (also in French)Rotavirus vaccineHepatitis B vaccine (also in French and Russian) Japanese encephalitis vaccineImmunization financing (also in French, Russian and Bahasa Indonesia). andan Excel tutorial (also in French)The AIM homepage is: http://aim.path.org

Thanks Cheyne for the info. I will go to the website and try to make use of the MSP tool for our country. However as it is known to all of us that in India states (provinces) are so big that they are to be treated as a country and I was just wondering that have we fed in all the states data into the tool to make it really useful for controlling Measles state by state.

Thanks Cheyne for this beautiful info. It would prove quite helpful for us in Africa where we conduct a Measles campaign every two to three years to meet the MDGs and Measles elimination goals that the region is aiming for. Regards. Abdul-Aziz
