Percentage of health facilities that have tracer items for child immunization services (N=1222)

Readiness for provision of immunization services: The mean readiness score for immunization services was 68%. On average, two of every three facilities assessed had varied combinations of the tracer items required to effectively provide immunization services. None of the facilities had all the tracer items required. Equipment for maintaining the cold chain for immunization commodities was predominantly cold boxes; they were available at 96% of facilities. However, only two of every three immunization health facilities had a refrigerator.

Forty percent (40%) of facilities had refrigerator temperature monitoring devices, and adequate temperature readings were observed at 34% of the health facilities. Two of every three health facilities offering immunization services had all the immunization vaccines, except human papillomavirus (HPV) and inactivated polio vaccine (IPV), which were not available at any facility visited.
