The revision of Immunization in Practice (IIP) was intended to meet the demand to improve immunization services so as to reach more infants in a sustainable way, building upon the experiences of polio eradication. We have thus included material adapted from polio on planning, monitoring and use of data to improve the service, that can be used at any level. Revising IIP has been a team exercise. There are contributions from a large number of experts, organizations and institutions.

This new edition has seven modules. Several new vaccines that have become more readily available and used in recent years have been added. Also the section on integration with other health interventions has been expanded as exciting opportunities and experiences have become evident in the years following the previous edition.

Module 1: Target diseases and vaccines
Module 2: The vaccine cold chain
Module 3: Ensuring safe injections
Module 4: Microplanning for reaching every community
Module 5: Managing an immunization session
Module 6: Monitoring and surveillance
Module 7: Partnering with communities
