Field guide for planning and implementing supplemental immunization activities for measles and rubella
AbstractSupplementary immunization activities (SIA) for measles are a way to quickly reduce the number of susceptibles in the population. When measles-rubella vaccine is used for cohorts susceptible to measles and rubella and rubella vaccine for other women of childbearing age, SIA provide the opportunity to quickly meet the 2010 objectives. "Field guide for planning and implementing supplemental immunization activities for measles and rubella" is intended to assist national immunization programme managers and subnational staff in the planning, organization, implementation and evaluation of SIA that may be required to meet the objectives
