|dc.description.abstract||The Tailoring Immunization Programmes approach (TIP) aims to help
national immunization programmes design targeted strategies to increase
uptake of infant and child vaccination. TIP was pilot tested in Bulgaria in
2012, and the lessons learnt from this project were incorporated in the
Guide to tailoring immunization programmes1, published in 2013.
This supportive document presents the outputs of the pilot project
in Bulgaria, in the form of three “custom solutions”: to strengthen the
number, role, reach and ability of health mediators to serve vulnerable
populations and support general practitioners (GPs); to increase the
supply of accurate, trustworthy information on child vaccination and
vaccine-preventable diseases on the internet targeted to caregivers;
and to improve the quality of the health worker – caregiver encounter.
The aim of the document is to facilitate the sharing of experience and
lessons learnt in Bulgaria with other countries considering implementation
of the TIP approach.||EN
