    Combining presentations and practical exercises, the training served to introduce participants to the tools and tablets used for data collection pertaining to routine immunization activities.  It also featured an introductory session on the related data to be filled after the completion of daily immunization activities. Furthermore, the training focused on the periodic analysis that should be made regarding the data collected and it ended with a review and feedback session.
