Framework for Action

Multisectoral requires multiple stakeholders. Include other PHC stakeholders and community or civil society groups in immunization planning processes at all levels to help identify and leverage synergies, and to share best practices.

Invest in and monitor implementation. Where national policies are supportive of integrated, people-centered primary health care look for opportunities to strengthen their implementation at the operational level, such as requiring integrated sub-national planning and budgeting or disseminating operational guidelines for integrated service delivery models of care.

Learn and share. Document learnings and experiences implementing integrated approaches, with a view toward measuring how immunization is contributing to strengthened PHC, and vice versa. This will contribute to a more robust evidence base to support these approaches. Identify opportunities for cross-country learning, especially in countries with less robust policy environments to enable integration.
