Attaining and sustaining very high vaccination coverage is the basic dream of RI lovers of any country to promote child health. An ambitious flagship project "Mission Indradhanush" was launched by India on 25th Dec 2014 with similar dream.
Now, Urban area of Belagavi District will be operating "INTENSIFIED MISSION INDRADHANUSH (IMI)" from Oct 2017. The district nodal officer on witnessing the dramatic increase and sustenance of immunization coverage (Christmas gift; Peraje Template; Immunogram study; Chikkaballapur Pilot project; Operation SiGMA; MISS Sampaje) and the recommendation by the district supervisor, 2 days training programme was held in the LHV training centre. In this, the participants were oriented as to how to use "EXTENDED IMMUNOGRAM" as complementary tool in achieving the objectives of Mission Indradhanush.
This tool provdes the A) 2 key elements -- IMI Specific Microplan & IMI specific, MCTS theme based highly sensitive / specific duelist B) non ambiguous denominators, scope to record the numerator against the denominator to obtain the critical indicators of IMI. A brief training report is attached for sharing.
Hope we will succeed in this endeavor.
