JSI will provide technical support to the national roll-out of two complimentary strategies to strengthen immunization services at the community level: My Village My Home (MVMH) and home-based records (HBR) in Zimbabwe. These strategies were successfully piloted in 10 health facilities in Manicaland province which prompted the Ministry of Health to engage JSI to support the national roll-out of these approaches. These two low-cost interventions promote community ownership of the immunization program and monitoring data for action at the community level.
