In response to revised WHO Multi-dose Vial Policy, 2014 and the circular guidelines issued by the GoI, subsequently by state govt (GoK) it was decided to operationalize the policy in the attached PHC. With literature review and on the basis of guidelines issued by the guidelines, a one pager ‘to do’ task responsibility training material cum job aider cum monitoring checklist (3 in 1) was drafted. On 6th November training workshop was held at the PHC with the consent and active participation by the district RCH officer. Presently open vial policy is not in practice as an organized structured training was not held. In the training workshop every minute detail was discussed and demonstrated as safety, efficacy and coverage are of utmost importance while preventing avoidable vaccine wastage. With rapidly expanding immunization programme, more vaccines which are freeze sensitive and costlier than the basic six vaccines MDVP is very much required. The draft was further fine tuned from the feedback obtained by the participants and district programme officer. This month is the interventional month, closely monitored to for operational research for further standardization of training workshop and to achieve expected outcome against the existing average wastage of last 12 months.
