Website’s content or editorial policy

Immunization Academy conducted formative research to identify the current challenges and content priorities of immunization professionals. In-depth interviews, focus groups, and working sessions were conducted with user groups in Tanzania. All video lessons are based on WHO guidance documents (Immunization in Practice and Mid-Level Managers) and interviews with subject matter experts.

Prior to production, transcripts were reviewed and updated by a panel of subject matter experts, as well as stakeholders at the Tanzania Ministry of Health. Find more information on Immunization Academy’s content policy at https://www.immunizationacademy.com/en/about.
