Integrating Vitamin A with Immunization
An Information and Training Package CD-ROM
Heller Keller International and WHO Department of Vaccines and Biologicals have developed a new CD-ROM called Integrating Vitamin A with Immunization: Information and Training CD-ROM. Since 1994 WHO/UNICEF policy promotes the integration of vitamin A supplementation with immunization services in areas where vitamin A deficiency is a public health problem. Designed for programme planners and managers this CD-ROM contains the essential information for the administration of vitamin A supplements with routine immunization services, National Immunization Days, and the treatment of sick children. The contents of the CD-ROM include sections on advocacy, science, operations and references. The distribution of this CD-ROM has been made possible by the Micronutrient Initiative (Canada).
