Monitoring and surveillance
Our focus is to monitor and assess the impact of strategies and activities for reducing morbidity and mortality of vaccine-preventable diseases. Collection, analysis and interpretation of surveillance data is vital to guide vaccination policies and programmes and ensure immunization targets are being reached.
Our core activities consist of the disease surveillance and burden, monitoring of immunization systems and reporting of data and statistics and are guided by the principles set out in the (Global Vaccine Action Plan)
Information on the current burden of vaccine preventable diseases, including disease-specific estimates of morbidity and mortality and global laboratory surveillance networks.
Information on monitoring the performance, quality and safety of immunization systems through indicators, including immunization coverage.
