Greetings, colleagues.

With increasing importance on user-focused improvements in routine, administrative immunization data quality and use, it is useful to have some experience-sharing from country learning and implementation. Linked below are a few recent blog posts and an article on in-country review meetings that may be of interest. These include experiences from Zimbabwe, Tanzania, Kenya, Ethiopia, Madagascar and Uganda.

1) Zimbabwe defaulter tracking: http://thepump.jsi.com/community-leaders-use-simple-tools-to-track-immunization-defaulters-in-zimbabwe/

2) Use of immunization data for local decision-making (including Madagascar example): http://thepump.jsi.com/data-for-decision-making-empowering-local-data-use/

3) Use of data by health workers in Tanzania: http://thepump.jsi.com/health-workers-improve-service-delivery-and-data-quality-at-a-health-center-in-tanzania/

4) Home based records and reminder dates (with links to experiences from Ethiopia and Madagascar): http://thepump.jsi.com/how-is-your-memory-due-dates-home-based-records-and-vaccination/

5) Immunization Review Meetings - capacity building and data quality improvement (examples from Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda):



We hope that these are helpful to those working with/in countries. Please share. Comments and questions are welcome.


Best regards,
