Immunization Module: Immunization Programme Management

Study Session 8  Immunization Programme Management


For more details of health planning, see Study Sessions 12 to 16 of the Health Education, Advocacy and Community Mobilisation Module, Part 2.

This study session is on the effective management of the immunization programme in your catchment area. We will show you how to plan, implement, monitor and evaluate your immunization activities, with the overall goal of increasing the immunization coverage rate in your community and sustaining the increase over time. First, you will learn how to prepare an annual plan of the immunization programme for your Health Post and measure progress towards meeting your objectives. Then, we show you how to prepare for your actual immunization sessions, either in a fixed facility (such as your Health Post), or in outreach activities or mobile delivery teams. You have already learned how to calculate the resources you will need in Study Session 5, and you may need to refer back to those calculations as you read this study session.
