International immunization training activities of the International Children’s Center

ICC has carried out a series of training courses on “Immunization in Practise”, “Immunization Training for Mid-Level Managers” and “Training of Trainers” in Tashkent of Uzbekistan on 11-22 September 2017. The training courses were supported by Ministry of Health of Uzbekistan, World Health Organisation (WHO) Europe Office and WHO Country Office.  Thirty two managers from different regions of all levels participated to each training course.

The main objective of the training is to contribute to increase the quality of immunization services, to increase immunization coverage and inform health professionals and managers on effective programme management. The objective of Training of Trainers is to enable course participants to transfer gained knowledge efficiently to health staff through training courses in Uzbekistan

As known, besides being one of the most successful and cost effective public health interventions, vaccines are also one of the most important factors affecting children's health and their quality of life.

The Expanded Program on Immunization covers the vaccination services for the vulnerable age groups in order to protect and immunize as well as to control and eradicate pertussis, diphtheria, tetanus, measles, mumps, tuberculosis, poliomyelitis, hepatitis B, and H. Influenza type B infections that can have serious consequences like illness, disability or death.

Immunization services are the primary services for preventive health care. These services also provide an opportunity to deliver other life-saving measures, such as nutrition, family planning to mothers and children.

As a Collaborating Center of WHO, ICC aims to expand this cost-effective approach not only in Turkey but also in Eastern Europe, the Balkans, and South Caucasus and in the Commonwealth of Independent States by providing skill-based training on program management to mid-level managers.
