A field trial to assess the effectiveness of a reminder sticker in reducing immunization dropout rates was conducted in two districts of Addis Ababa between 14 October 1991 and 31 January 1992.
A total of 703 children were entered into the study.
The study population was randomly divided into intervention and control groups.
The intervention group received a reminder sticker and the control group did not.
All other services were identical.
A baseline interview documented the socio-demographic and maternal characteristics potentially related to immunization services utilization and revealed no statistically significant differences between the two groups.
The dropout rates were 7.3 and 13.3% in the intervention and control groups respectively.
