Community Monitoring of Individual Children's Vaccinations: Six Country Experiences

Community Monitoring of Individual Children's Vaccinations: Six Country Experiences

Publication Date
Saturday, December 1, 2018

Engaging communities to monitor every child's individual vaccinations, promote vaccination, and refer caregivers with under-vaccinated children are strategies that can improve both immunisation services and their appropriate use in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). Informed by experiences with these strategies, this brief details initiatives in 6 countries facilitated by two United States Agency for International Development (USAID) programmes, and with technical support from John Snow, Inc.: the Maternal and Child Health Integrated Program (MCHIP) from 2009 to 2014 and the Maternal and Child Survival Program (MCSP) from 2014 to 2019. Most of these experiences used a simple community tool called My Village Is My Home (MVMH), more information about which may be found at Related Summaries, below.
