The goal of the IDEA project is to identify, review, synthesize, and disseminate what works to improve the use of immunization data and why it works. In partnership with PAHO, the Health Systems Analytics team at PATH conducted a “realist” systematic review of existing research evidence to determine what are the most effective interventions to improve the use of data for immunization program and policy decision-making; and why and how these interventions produce the outcomes that they do.

The IDEA review draws on nearly 550 documents including published literature, working papers, project evaluations and reports, which were distilled and prioritized by global immunization experts.
