What is Included in This Collection?
Resources in this collection are available in a diversity of formats, such as journal articles, case studies, PowerPoint presentations, digital tools, checklists, and more. The resources that can be categorized by specific building block are marked accordingly, but many cut across multiple building blocks. All resources are meant to reflect the changing context of various country vaccination experiences, including as longer-term policies for COVID-19 vaccination are formulated. These resources are not meant to outline a prescriptive approach, but rather to present considerations and options for countries to consider and apply based on their needs and contexts.
We hope this Collection directs governments, program implementers, and other stakeholders to key guidance tools, as well as more informal examples of integration that may resonate in their own country contexts. An orientation around the seven health systems building blocks provides a holistic, health system-wide framework for the integration of COVID-19 vaccination into PHC. The lessons learned from the COVID-19 pandemic, when integrated into primary health care, will lead to more resilient health systems that are better prepared for future health emergencies.
