WELCOME! This toolkit was created by the Comprehensive Family Immunization Unit (IM) of the Pan American Health Organization / World Health Organization (PAHO/WHO) as a resource to support managers of the Expanded Programs on Immunization (EPI) in the Region, as well as their teams, in all aspects of the planning, monitoring, reporting and evaluation of immunization programs.
This toolkit also serves as a mini reference library for PAHO/WHO technical recommendations on immunization, policy resolutions from PAHO’s Governing Bodies on immunization-related topics, pertinent guidelines and field guides, and key publications from partners.
PAHO encourages national immunization programs to explore all sections of this toolkit and hope it is of great use. This toolkit is available via the Web; however, links to certain resources will be unavailable without an internet connection. Questions, comments and special requests for technical assistance should be directed to a country’s nearest PAHO/WHO Country Office.
