The purpose of the technical consultation on vaccination data is to review the current methods used for measuring vaccination coverage through household surveys and assess possibilities for the future. The main objectives of the consultation will be to review methods and approaches and provide recommendations on:
  • Addressing challenges to the collection of quality data on vaccine coverage in household surveys
  • Best approaches for collecting data on newer vaccines and target groups in household surveys
  • Appropriate use of serosurveillance in the context of household surveys
  • Relevant analyses and reporting of vaccination coverage data for country and global decision-making

The consultation will aim to generate recommendations for household surveys in general, but with a special emphasis placed on improvements for The Demographic and Health Surveys Program.

The consultation is by invitation only.
