The PMI MIP team met with the MCH group and HIV teams to review the questionnaires. We had this observation on Q414-420: This is the section on TT vaccination. We wondered if these questions had been validated somehow as they are possibly quite subjective. Do women know what type of vaccination they receive in settings where vaccinations are common? Or in situations where TT is was given in 'campaign' fashion. If these data have not been validated, perhaps these questions could be reduced to one or two.. We suggest reviewing these questions with experts on TT as we felt they may have been developed a long time ago and not revised since.
