Targeted Assistance to Strengthen Immunization Systems and Capacity in Western Area, Sierra LeoneDistricts (or national):Western Area Urban (WAU),Western Area Rural (WAR)

Project Details

ICAP is working to enhance childhood immunization linkages between public health units and community health workers to increase uptake of the second routine dose of recommended measles containing vaccine, MCV2. Interventions will help to strengthen integrated defaulter-tracking, community outreach, and demand promotion in order to help reduce dropout between MCV1 and MCV2.

As part of this work, ICAP will also conduct a retrospective review and analysis of trends in monthly administrative vaccination coverage in the periods leading up to the intervention and after the intervention using existing data in the SL DHIS2 platform.

This project is funded by the CDC Foundation.
