As part of the activities planned to quick off 2016 work plan, the NGI-TAG through their secretariat, the National Primary Health Care Development Agency has requested SIVAC technical support in organizing a workshop training on the methodology of issuing evidence based recommendation. It took place in the Federal Capital City Abuja from 18th to 19th December 2016 and saw the participation of diverse profiles from the secretariat team as well as some core members. The main purpose of the training was to strengthen the capacity of NGI-TAG secretariat to support NITAG members in developing evidence-based recommendations on immunization related issues.
The sessions were very participatory and facilitated by SIVAC and the secretariat staff. The topic was covered in six sessions. In addition a special session was devoted to discussion around vaccine prioritisation framework. At the end of the workshop, the NGI-TAG secretariat coordinator, Dr Mahmud acknowledged the relevance of the training and called upon his team on an internal continuous learning process to improve support to vaccine decision making activities within the NGI-TAG.
