Evaluation of linking supplementary immunisation activities and routine immunisation in Nepal

MMGH assisted the WHO Country Office and Ministry of Health (MoH) Nepal in the evaluation of a new initiative linking supplementary immunisation activities (SIAs), against measles and rubella, with intensified follow-up of children who had missed their routine immunisation doses. MMGH collaborated with Routes 2 Results in designing a mixed methods research protocol, developing and pre-testing survey and data collection forms, and supervising a local agency carrying out the research in four provinces of the country. The work will inform the MoH of Nepal and of other countries about the effectiveness of the new interventions to strengthen routine immunisation service delivery through an SIA-based approach.
