SUMMARY

JSI will work hand-in-hand with the MoHFW, Government of India, and the core working group (CWG) to update operational guidelines, training materials, and build capacity for the introduction of pneumococcal vaccine (PCV) in 14 states.

JSI, through the CWG, will support the state governments in creating a state working group (SWG) consisting of the representatives from the state government and the immunization partners present in the state. The SWG will serve as a key facilitator for the various activities for preparation and implementation of PCV roll out (e.g. planning/coordination, training, communication and logistics).

JSI will facilitate and assist in coordinating the activities of central level CWG, to also provide technical assistance to the MoHFW and the state governments. As part of this, JSI will support MOHFW and states in developing the terms of reference of state working groups with agreed upon activities and responsibilities. After 6 -12 months of the roll out, JSI will support the MoHFW in conducting a post-introduction evaluation.
