WHO-UNICEF guidelines for developing a comprehensive multi-year plan (cMYP)
This document provides guidance to countries to make national comprehensive multi-year strategic plans (MYP) for immunization, using the Global Immunization Vision and Strategy 2006-2015 (GIVS) as a guiding framework. It provides a new approach to planning that can be summarized as follows: 1. Ensuring that the strategies in the plan are sufficiently comprehensive using the GIVS as a guide. 2. Integrating and consolidating activities withother health interventions and within the immunization programme to solve shared problems. 3. Planning by immunization sytstem components rather than by disease or initiative. 4. Includes financial planning and costing. The document takes the reader through the process of planning with worked examples of each step for illustration and guidance.The 12 steps for creating a comprehensive multi-year plan include: conducting situational analysis, determining national priorities, setting nationa objectives and milestones, planning strategies and key activities by stem components, reviewing planned activities against GIVS activities, making an activity timeline, costing the MYP, developing an annual plan for ther relevant year from MYP, integrating and consolidating activities for implementation, prioritizing activities using district analysis, establishing the timeline, responsible units and finacial resources for the annual plan, and putting MYP into action.
