Measurement of immunisation coverage

Abstract

Vaccination coverage surveys - Publication abstract: WHO and UNICEF welcome Stephen Lim and colleagues' contribution to the more accurate measurement of immunisation coverage,1 and fully concur with the recommendations to improve routine immunisation monitoring systems and the need to validate results of these systems periodically with surveys. We feel that such efforts are necessary not only to document progress towards international goals and to meet donor reporting requirements but, even more importantly, to improve immunisation service delivery at local and national levels.
