Hereby to share a new resource on IIS produced by the Vaccine-preventable diseases at ECDC in collaboration with partners globally:
Designing and implementing an immunisation information system. A handbook for those involved in the design, implementation or management of immunisation information systems
We would like to hereby acknowledge the contribution of a number of experts in contributing to this report and providing case-studies based on their experience in Immunisation information systems. We hope this document will prove relevant in further informing decisions and discussions at National Level.
The handbook proposes strategies that build on the experiences of IIS experts; provides case studies from actual programmes to highlight particular aspects of IIS practice, including functionalities, benefits, challenges, and implementation. It aims to share experiences and explore ideas that IIS experts consider valuable for developing a new IIS or upgrading an existing system,.
The handbook is intended for all those involved in the design, implementation, management or continuous improvement of IIS, such as immunisation programme managers and operational IIS staff; and also public health experts and policymakers.
