The 15th TechNet Conference will be held in Cascais, Portugal, October 16–20. The conference convenes a global network of immunization professionals to discuss developments in immunization practices and policies, exchange field experiences, and identify areas that require further investigation.

JSI is working around the globe to increase data visibility through better information systems, improve data use for decision making, optimize the supply chain design, equip partners with knowledge about what works and how to adapt best practices from other settings and the commercial sector to fit their contexts, and build capacity to strengthen routine immunization programs and systems. Please join us at the sessions below and follow @JSIhealth on Twitter for the latest from the conference.
