Applying Equitable Approaches to Immunization: Implementation in Ethiopia and Uganda Shows How the RED-QI Approach Improves Equitable Access to Vaccines


The Reaching Every District (RED) strategy is used by most African countries to strengthen management of routine immunization services at the district level and below to improve equity. However, many districts and health facilities have faced challenges in fully operationalizing RED.  To address these challenges, JSI applied concepts and tools from the field of quality improvement to develop and implement an innovative approach, known as Reaching Every District using Quality Improvement (RED-QI). RED-QI helps immunization programs fully put RED into practice.

This brief is part of a series documenting JSI's lessons learned from implementing the RED-QI approach in Ethiopia and Uganda. The brief describes how RED-QI improved equity in immunization in Ethiopia and Uganda and focuses on improvements in microplanning.
