The purpose of this Guide is to stimulate interest in improving and sustaining high levels of immunization coverage in all districts and to give health program managers (governmental and non-governmental), supervisors and health workers practical information about the RED approach.
The Guide is intended for adaptation and use by national immunization programs, as one of several resources that can be used to introduce district health teams and immunization partners to the RED approach. Once adapted, it can also be used by district health teams and health workers as a quick reference to the five RED components and core monitoring indicators. Another important use for the Guide may be in explaining RED to local officials and other potential supporters of immunization and PHC services.
