Dear TechNet-21 community,
As most of you know, countries are focusing on the cold chain expansion, but disposal of old & obsolete cold chain equipment are also one of the identified gaps. Due to this fact we are planning to work on it, could you share with us country experience or guideline on the decommissioning of old and obsolete CCE?
We are pleased to announce the launch of our new resource library available here: http://bit.ly/vaccine_library What can you expect from the library: - A faster (less than 1 second!) and more powerful search engine with more filters (type of document, category, language, disease, author...) - More documents as our Cold Chain Equipment documents are now also available in the library - You can now mass download your search result into a zip that includes a csv file with the resources info and all the uploaded files attached - It's optimized for mobile devices - You can choose between two grid views or a list presentation - You can easily post comments on each document page - The downlaod page offers a suggestion of related resources And as before, if you see there's a relevant missing document, you can upload it in the resource library to make it available to all! Our resource library is one of the m...
The recently published topic page on dose per container (DPC) provides a range of useful resources from case studies to decision support documents to better understand the effects of DPC on six immunization system components; namely operational costs, timely coverage, safety, wastage, and policy/correct use.
The Dose Per Container Partnership (DPCP) is excited to share these resources and hope that you will find them useful in your work with the immunization system as a whole. We encourage you to share your thoughts with us to continue the conversation on DPC.
EHC is a valuable method of obtaining excess energy from an SDD refrigerator, however an autonomous solar direct system powering USB ports is a simpler, more reliable and less expensive method of providing auxiliary power. USB ports can be powered directly from a solar panel, no batteries are required. The conversion device is simple and reliable; these ports can be used for charging cell phones, ipads, lights and AA or AAA batteries.There are a large variety of lights available: lanterns, directional lights, headlamps and lights with motion sensors. Jump starting car batteries can also be charged by a USB port. If desired a 12 volt port could also be incorporated to power a fan and if needed a 12 Volt battery. USB charged devices typically require an average of 3 watts of charging power. Twelve watts of solar per USB port will supply reliable charging at the beginning and end of the solar day and during overcast conditions. For 4 ports a 48 watt module would provide highly reliable p...
Merci pour les documents.Y'a t-il des versions en français ?
Learning is a continuous prosess, attached is one such example applicable for the entire country with ~28000 planning units; presenting the attachment as an evidence for continuous learning.

What is a typical frequency of outreach operations for EPI vaccinations? Monthly, quarterly, every six months, annually? Are there any prescribed standards for this? On a related note, are outreach operations typically scheduled at the same locations or do they shift these from place to place? Thanks for any pointers.
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 prac...
What are the vaccines that could be given to children who have missed their immunization as scheduled? Some children come at 1 year, 2 years and even at 3 years of age without receiving any vaccine or only a few of them. I would like to know what vaccines could be given at various ages for children who have missed required injections of vaccines.
