Reaching All Populations

To extend the benefits of vaccines to everyone, everywhere, immunization programs must focus on specific subpopulations.

We work with national and sub-national governments and partners to design and implement approaches for subpopulations such as those living in urban or rural areas, zero-dose children, infants, adolescents, or adults, etc. As a result of our extensive efforts, we understand the barriers facing these communities and are experts at developing short- and long-term solutions. We work closely with civil society, the nonprofit and for-profit private sector, and government stakeholders to develop and implement locally tailored interventions such as extended service hours, active case follow-up and catch-up campaigns, and school-based vaccinations.

Our support has helped countries reach all populations to ensure everyone is vaccinated on time, regardless of geography or age.

Project in Focus

MOMENTUM Routine Immunization Transformation and Equity

The MOMENTUM Routine Immunization Transformation and Equity project is part of a suite of innovative awards funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) to holistically improve family planning and maternal and child health in partner countries around the world. The project is USAID’s flagship technical assistance mechanism for immunization and is active in 12 countries and has supported over 18 countries. It applies best practices and explores innovations to increase equitable immunization coverage in USAID-supported countries. It builds countries’ capacity to identify and overcome barriers to reaching zero-dose and under-immunized children and older populations with life-saving vaccines and other integrated health services, including rebuilding immunization systems adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The project also supports COVID-19 vaccine rollout across countries with a wide range of circumstances and needs.

JSI has been awarded a new cooperative agreement, MOMENTUM, from the USAID that will strengthen immunization programs around the world.
