This report details Public Health England’s (PHE’s) work to address the low immunisation uptake among the Charedi Orthodox Jewish community in north east London. It uses a range of the Tailoring Immunization Programmes (TIP) methodologies to evaluate effectiveness of vaccination programmes in this area.
As part of efforts to eliminate measles and rubella, the World Health Organization Regional Office for Europe (WHO/Europe) developed the TIP method and tools to:
- identify susceptible populations
- determine barriers to vaccination
- implement evidence-based interventions
The approach draws on health programme planning models, including the medical humanities, the social and behavioural sciences.
