Routine Immunizations in Ghana
Friday, 15th July
Ann has been in Ghana for a month leading a team of international and Ghanaian researchers. We are part of a three-country study investigating drivers of successful childhood immunization programs. Vaccines are one of the most effective global health initiatives but little is known about how African countries can delivery excellent coverage. Ghana has been able to achieve this, and we are looking at four districts to understand what has made this possible. The study design calls for a mixed methods case study approach and our team is using grounded theory to build and test the generalisability of a model of routine immunization performance drivers. This is Ann’s first time in Africa and she is loving every minute of it. Music, colour, grace and dignity are some of the over-riding impressions. Photos can be seen through a link to a facebook page.
