Immunization, Vaccines and Biologicals

Service Delivery

What does it take for a life-saving vaccine to reach a child, adolescent or adult?

Many components must come together for effective and efficient service delivery -- detailed planning, skilled managers and vaccinators, continuous supplies and logistics, costing assessments and communication and advocacy of the benefits of vaccination.

WHO is working with partners and Member States to improve access to immunization services for all communities. Provided here are resources and guidance to help ensure valuable and reliable vaccine service delivery.
