Authors: Health Partners International
Document Type: Factsheets
Publication Date: 2013

This is the sixth in a series of six factsheets on the theme of Evidence for Action, that draw on the results and lessons learned from the PRRINN-MNCH programme. This particular factsheet focuses on Using the TICK sheet to improve documentation of routine immunisations. The key messages are:

Inaccurate data is one of the factors in the extremely low immunisation rates officially reported in Northern Nigeria.

  1. PRRINN-MNCH implemented a pilot study to test the effectiveness of an adapted format using a ‘TICK sheet’ to simplify and improve data collection.
  2. The results showed substantially improved immunisation rates in the intervention sites and a generally high level of satisfaction among health workers using the sheets.
  3. Policy makers should continue to improve the TICK sheet and expand its use.
