UNICEF: Third Party Monitoring: Cross-Border Entry Points

UNICEF’s health and nutrition section needed to monitor the vaccination process running in four cross border entry points on the Lebanese-Syrian border and the performance of a UNICEF partner – Beyond – operating under the UNICEF Immunization program in those centers. InfoPro in coordination with UNICEF conducted a total of 112 ad hoc visits to monitor the vaccination process and the performance of Beyond in the Abboudieh, Bqaiaa, Aarida centers located in Akkar and the Masnaa center located in the West Bekaa. In each of the visited centers, InfoPro field monitors evaluated the number of passengers receiving vaccines during the visit, Inventory status (maintenance of vaccines temperature, availability of polio and measles vaccines, availability of red and blue vitamin A, the state of each vaccine vial), daily registration including number of individuals receiving each vaccine and number of pregnant women, and whether Beyond staff were registering their records.
