Measles Elimination: Field Guide
MetadataShow full item record
The Measles Elimination Field Guide aims to provide health authorities, medical officers, and other health personnel involved in measles elimination at national, state, and local levels with a step-by-step manual for setting up and carrying out activities to eliminate measles and those activities required to sustain its elimination. The second edition of this guide incorporates experiences acquired over the past 12 years by the countries in the Region of the Americas, but can be used by any country working toward the elimination of measles. It emphasizes vaccination and surveillance strategies that are required to eliminate measles and to continually monitor progress toward achieving and sustaining such a goal. Some of the measures described may need to be adapted to local conditions. Several prototype forms are included in the annexes and can be copied or modified to meet particular needs.
