BLN Webinar: Triangulation for Improved Decision-Making in Immunization Programs

, , , ,

The BID Learning Network invites you to watch a webinar called: “Triangulation for Improved Decision-Making in Immunization Programs.” Successful immunization programs use data to guide efficient management, tailor strategies, and make decisions to achieve program goals. Many data sources exist within and outside the Expanded Programme on Immunization (EPI), but the use of various data sources together is not optimal in many countries. In the absence of perfect data, public health practice has long acknowledged that combining many pieces of weaker evidence can form a strong basis for making more informed decisions. As such, triangulation which is the synthesis of two or more existing data sources, is used to address relevant questions for program planning and decision-making. This webinar will introduce the concept of data triangulation in immunization programs for decision-making and present examples of data triangulation use in the field.
