We are pleased to announce the launch of the topic page for Missed Opportunities for Vaccination (MOV) on TechNet: https://www.technet-21.org/en/topics/mov

The MOV topics page includes tables with information about:

• MOV publications
• MOV training material
• Interventions to reduce MOV by addressing health worker knowledge, attitudes and practice
• Interventions to reduce MOV by addressing health systems issues
• Interventions to reduce MOV by addressing the demand-side (caregiver behaviours)

The launch of this page also coincides with the finalization of the Intervention guidebook for implementing and monitoring activities to reduce Missed Opportunities for Vaccination (MOV). The purpose of the Intervention Guidebook is to provide practical advice on how to ensure a smooth transition between Steps 6 and 7, and guidance to countries in implementing the final steps (Steps 7–10) of the 10-step MOV strategy. These steps will help putting the assessment findings into practice. The guide also includes frequent reasons for MOV, an overview of potential interventions to reduce MOV, examples of job aids and other materials for use at the health facility level, and guidance for activities and processes to explore and design locally tailored interventions to reduce MOV.

As new publications, training material and interventions to reduce MOV become available, we will update them to the relevant table. If there are any interventions not included in the guide or in the tables, let us know!

I hope you enjoy the MOV topics page and if you like further information related to MOV it can be found here: https://www.who.int/immunization/programmes_systems/policies_strategies/MOV/en/

A big thank you to Dan Brigden, Alex Pascutto and Alex Lee for their support in developing this page!

Hi Clement, the link is working and a zip file download should begin once you have launched the page. However, it may depend on the browser you are using. The link below is to the WHO MOV page where we have the MOV resources, training materials etc. This may be a better file path for you.

Thank you Laura for sharing all these resources on Missed-Opportunities for Vaccination (MOVs).

I'd like to point out TechNet-21 readers to guidance on Home-based records (vaccination/ health cards) from WHO. HBRs are crucial to reduce MOVs, as it is the tool users and health workers have to check vaccines given and pending. The proper use and conservation of HBRs will allow identifying vaccines doses due or over-due and administering them at any contact with a health care provider. WHO has guidance on HBRs for vaccination: https://www.who.int/immunization/monitoring_surveillance/routine/homebasedrecords/en/ and in general for the integrated care of mothers and children: https://www.who.int/maternal_child_adolescent/documents/home-based-records-guidelines/en/
