The Moldovan Ministry of Health began working with PIVI in 2015 to implement a sustainability plan for a national influenza vaccination program. This initiated their first purchase of influenza vaccine doses.
Soon after, with support from PIVI and the National Center for Public Health, Moldova administered a Knowledge, Attitudes, and Practices (KAP) questionnaire to healthcare workers in ten districts. This questionnaire is adapted from the World Health Organization’s Regional Office for Europe (WHO EURO) guide, “Tailoring Influenza Programmes for Seasonal Influenza” (TIP FLU), which demonstrates to program managers and policymakers how to utilize existing vaccination programs to promote seasonal influenza vaccination.
Findings of the guide identified the need in Moldova for more vaccination education. Therefore, Moldova conducted ten regional healthcare worker training workshops and published a complete healthcare worker guide on the benefits of a national influenza vaccination program.
Held 10 HCW training workshops
