This module is an ideal introduction for anyone with interest in immersing themselves in the theory and practicalities of immunization and particularly Measles in the humanitarian emergency context. It is intended to assist public health practitioners to align their knowledge with and be up-to-date on the latest immunization methods and protocols.
MCES course is highly user friendly, illustrated, engaging and flexible, and consists of sub-modules covering
