How can you make a difference?  

Background:

Although immunization coverage rates are usually higher in urban areas than in rural areas, evidence shows the largest number of un/under-immunized children often reside in urban slums. Further, urban slum areas lack access to basic services and are densely populated and therefore creating an additional risk for disease outbreaks and a high-impact environment for immunization. Improving routine immunization in the urban slums is an essential element to address immunization coverage and equity for a few reasons which includes,

 Deliverables:

⢠Analyze the coverage and equity situation and determine why coverage is lower in specific population groups, geographical areas or pockets of under-immunized children.
⢠Identify constraints to improving coverage and equity, particularly as they relate to service delivery, supply chain, data, demand promotion, immunization financing, leadership, management & coordination (LMC) and political will and accountability.
⢠Identify gender-related barriers to vaccination arising from social and financial restrictions to womenâs mobility, decision-making and interactions outside the home, and the fact that most primary caregivers are women.
⢠Based on the findings, identify, and develop pro-equity strategies and interventions and resource mobilize to support implementation in country plans.
⢠Contextualized framework, narrative and country mission for the urban immunization developed with a focus on zero dose in Nigeria.
⢠Brief of the results of the CEA to be presented to the Equity Reference Group for Immunization and shared for comment with colleagues at country, regional and global level).
⢠A plan of action for recommended materials and products (domestic resource mobilization, tools, dashboards, evidence sharing and key messages) needed for country-level decision-making following engagement with immunization technical working groups, committees and the private sector.
