We evaluated a training intervention aimed at enhancing the roles of health centre staff, Village Health Volunteers (VHVs) and Traditional Birth Attendants (TBAs) within the Expanded Program for Immunization (EPI) in the district of Krakor, Cambodia. We conducted population-based surveys to determine the coverage of the EPI at baseline (1996) and after the intervention (1998), using data from health cards for mothers and their children and history data. Statistically significant changes over the 2-year period were apparent for tetanus, BCG, polio and DTP, supporting the positive impact the training intervention had on immunization coverage in the district.
