A mechanism for generation of ideas on how to improve immunization services at the national level, working with GAVI and its partners, and with countries and regional working groups. 3. A reality check on policy and technology options proposed by WHO and other GAVI partner organizations, bringing a field perspective to these proposals. All subscribers are also invited to visit Technet 21 website at http://www.technet21.org/framesWorks.html to have more details on Technet21 functions, especially the working modalities that were defined to reach its objectives.
