   Review of SIA technical reports
• Objective: To explore available information on interaction
  between measles SIA and routine immunization
• Method: Review of the available post-SIA technical
  reports submitted to Measles Initiative via WHO/AFRO
  during 2002-2006 (N=54)
   – Abstratcted information in 9 areas of interest where measles
     SIAs may have an effect on routine immunization services:
     microplanning, injection safety, waste management, logistics,
     cold chain management, adverse events from immunization
     (AEFI) surveillance, implementation of other interventions, social
     mobilization, and surveillance/data management.
Review of SIA technical reports
        2002-2006 (2)
   Review of SIA technical reports
           2002-2006 (3)
• Conclusion:
  – Reporting forms useful to gain an insight about the
    inputs provided for SIA preparation, but insufficient to
    answer the question if and how SIAs contribute to
    routine immunization strengthening
• Next steps:
  – Consider conducting prospective studies in 1-2
    countries to systematically evaluate interaction
    between SIA and routine immunization
  – Consider revising the technical report format to
    improve usefulness of the routinely collected
    information for future evaluations
