Immunization Academy is a global learning initiative providing rapid access to short, practical videos that enhance immunization training and delivery in the field. This initiative is sponsored by a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and led by learning experts at Bull City Learning using WHO-approved guidance, which includes Training for mid-level managers (MLM) and Immunization in Practice (IIP).
The following individuals have reviewed all training transcripts and provided guidance on immunization training topics.

Dr. Jean-Marc Olive, member of WHO IPAC (Immunization Practice Advisory Committee), retired from WHO

Dr. Robin J. Biellik, PATH (retired) and WHO (retired)
As part of a human-centered design approach, we conducted formative research to identify the current challenges and content priorities of the target audience and key stakeholders. In-depth interviews, focus groups, and working sessions were conducted with user groups in Tanzania. Based on these inputs and on existing immunization “best practices” as defined by the WHO, a list of prioritized video topics was generated and vetted with the target audience. Once approved, each video topic was researched using WHO guidance documents (Immunization in Practice and Mid-Level Managers) and interviews with subject matter experts. Video transcripts were reviewed and updated by a panel of subject matter experts, as well as stakeholders at the Tanzania Ministry of Health. The editorial and review process was conducted independently, without any affiliations other than the ones described above.
