Strengthening routine immunization through measles-rubella elimination

The 2016 mid-term review of the Global Measles-Rubella Strategic Plan 2012–20 for achieving measles-rubella elimination concluded that the full potential of strategies and activities to strengthen routine immunization (RI) service delivery had not been met. In December 2017, researchers contacted the World Health Organization (WHO) and partner agency immunization staff in all six WHO Regions who identified 23 countries working on measles or rubella elimination that have implemented examples of recommended activities to improve RI, adapted to their needs.

Measles surveillance in Canada: 2016

Both in Canada and abroad, maintaining high vaccination coverage with measles-containing vaccine remains a significant public health effort, as well as an essential component of a strategy for achieving and maintaining measles elimination. Although importations and suboptimal vaccination coverage continue to challenge Canada’s elimination status, surveillance data provided strong evidence that measles elimination has been maintained.

Surveillance de la rougeole au Canada : 2016

Tant au Canada qu’à l'étranger, le maintien d’une couverture élevée par le vaccin contenant le virus de la rougeole demeure un important effort de santé publique, ainsi qu’un élément essentiel d’une stratégie en vue d’atteindre et de maintenir l’élimination de la rougeole. Bien que les cas importés et la couverture vaccinale sous-optimale continuent de menacer le statut d’élimination de la rougeole pour le Canada, les données de surveillance fournissent des preuves solides que l’élimination de la rougeole a été maintenue.

Couverture vaccinale des enfants canadiens : points saillants de l'Enquête nationale sur la couverture vaccinale des enfants de 2013 (ENCVE)

L’Enquête nationale sur la couverture vaccinale des enfants (ENCVE) de 2013 constitue la plus grande enquête sur la couverture vaccinale nationale au Canada. Ses résultats indiquent que la majorité des enfants canadiens sont immunisés contre les maladies évitables par la vaccination, mais qu'on peut améliorer la situation en ce qui a trait aux doses de rappel.
