A realist systematic review of evidence from low- and middle-income countries of interventions to improve immunization data use


The use of routine immunization data by health care professionals in low- and middle-income countries remains an underutilized resource in decision-making. Despite the significant resources invested in developing national health information systems, systematic reviews of the effectiveness of data use interventions are lacking. Applying a realist review methodology, this study synthesized evidence of effective interventions for improving data use in decision-making.
