Global routine immunization strategies and practices (GRISP)


The purpose of GRISP is to reassert routine immunization as the foundation for sustained decreases in morbidity and mortality from vaccine-preventable diseases across the life-cycle of all individuals. Its objectives are: ◆ to contribute to country efforts towards sustained routine immunization programmes; ◆ to set global priorities in the attainment of immunization for all persons targeted; ◆ to ensure global, regional and country coordination among immunization partners and stakeholders in routine immunization activities and plans; ◆ to align new vaccine introduction, accelerated disease control and prevention and programme monitoring activities with a joint goal of routine immunization programme support, both in relation to coverage improvement and system strengthening efforts.
