Measles Programmatic Risk Assessment Tool

Language

The World Health Organization (WHO) measles programmatic risk assessment tool was developed to help national programmes to identify areas not meeting measles programmatic targets, and based on the findings, guide and strengthen measles elimination program activities and reduce the risk of outbreaks. This Excel-based tool assesses subnational programmatic risk as the sum of indicator scores in four categories: population immunity, surveillance quality, program performance, and threat assessment. Each subnational area is assigned to a programmatic risk category of low, medium, high, or very high risk based on the overall risk score. Scoring for each indicator was developed based on expert consensus.
