Country stakeholders can explore the strategies employed by other countries to overcome and mitigate challenges related to the implementation and scale-up of EIRs.
In October 2023, the Linked Immunisation Action Network (Linked) partnered with The University of Sydney School of Public Health to host country teams from Bhutan, Laos, Indonesia, and Viet Nam for a study tour to Australia to explore the history, structure, use, and features of the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR). In examining how Australia developed and scaled the AIR over time, important strategies and lessons emerged. Then, in December 2023, Linked hosted a webinar exploring the challenges and barriers related to implementing and scaling Electronic Immunisation Registers (EIRs). Participants of the AIR study tour joined representatives from Guyana, Honduras, and Nicaragua virtually to share the main takeaways from their trip to Australia and exchange experience cross-regionally. This learning resource synthesizes the shared challenges and major lessons or strategies that emerged from both engagements.
