About the project 

With the pandemic, we see a drastic disparity in the uptake of vaccination among the vulnerable, hesitant, and hard-to-reach sections of society. With this in mind as a part of our vaccination efforts, we look to increase the vaccination uptake. We will be working closely with a field implementation partner as well as the district health authorities. Our role is to supplement the field partner’s implementation expertise by contextualizing communication materials, adapting new strategies for mobilization, creating protocols and training for field staff in running sessions sites, as well as documenting learnings that can be utilized in setting up similar programs in other difficult to vaccinate communities.
