The International Children’s Center – ICC carries its training activities to behind borders

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 family planning and nutrition, 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.

By this means, ICC in collaboration with UNICEF Tashkent Office and WHO Tashkent Office and full support of Ministry of Health Care of Uzbekistan carried out Workshop on Immunization Training for Mid-level Managers in Tashkent-Uzbekistan on 25-29 March 2013. Thirty three managers from different regions of all levels participated the workshop.

The main objective of the workshop is to contribute to increase the quality of immunization services, to increase immunization coverage and inform health professionals and managers on effective programme management.
