|Strategies proposed by EPI managers for addressing barriers|
|1||Insufficient knowledge of vaccines and immunisation||Training, supportive supervision, and audit and feedback|
|2||Financial constraints||Government should make appropriate financial arrangements for financing the EPI|
|3||Staff shortages and high staff turn-over||Government should put in place appropriate strategies for recruitment and retention of staff|
|4||Poor communication among stakeholders||Use best available evidence for vaccine advocacy and social mobilisation|
|5.||Resistance from parents and anti-immunisation rumours||Strengthen social mobilisation and provide timely evidence-based response to rumours|
