The manual is an introductory guide to inequality monitoring in the topic of immunization. Aiming to build capacity for the uptake and improvement of inequality monitoring practices in immunization, the manual was primarily designed for monitoring and evaluation officers for immunization, and may also be of interest for other readers with basic knowledge and experience working with immunization data.
This resource is organized in five sections, illustrating how the five steps (and corresponding sub-steps) of health inequality monitoring apply to immunization. From the first step of determining the scope of monitoring to the fifth step of knowledge translation, contemporary considerations and examples for immunization inequality monitoring are highlighted. Step-by-step guidance, including key questions and best practices for each sub-step, are summarized in a flow chart. Additional information is provided through appendices and a glossary of terms.
