As part of the surveillance, communication material is distributed to Vaccination Centres and surgeries of primary care paediatricians to provide correct information on key determinants of health in young children, and advise on healthcare professionals and reference websites that can offer further details and clarification.
Originally developed for the GenitoriPiù programme of Region Veneto, the communication material was updated, in terms of both content and design, to better reflect the purpose of the Surveillance. This was done in collaboration with local health unit 9 of Region Veneto.
