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.

Working at both national and sub-national levels, the project supports countries to reach underserved populations with services that reduce vaccine-preventable diseases. The project focuses on identifying and reaching zero-dose and under-immunized children; supporting COVID-19 vaccination; and strengthening life-course vaccination. Project activities include planning and coordination, supply chain, health worker capacity building, co-creation approaches, demand generation/community engagement, and data/monitoring and evaluation.

The project was awarded to JSI Research & Training Institute Inc., and their sub-partners PATH, Accenture Development Partnerships, Results for Development, and CORE Group. The consortium brings a track record in shaping global direction, and will collaborate with local partners to improve immunization outcomes and build on the accomplishments and learnings.

Active countries: Benin, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Cote d’Ivoire, DRC, Haiti, India, Kenya, Moldova, Mozambique, Nigeria, North Macedonia, Serbia.

Previously supported countries: Ethiopia, Ghana, Kyrgyz Republic, Madagascar, Mali, Niger, South Sudan, Vietnam.
