Haiti Strategies for Improving Vaccination Coverage in Urban Poor Settings


The directorate of the Expanded Program on Immunization (EPI), an arm within the Ministry of Public Health and Population (MPHP) in charge of vaccination activities, after having noticed the low rate of vaccination coverage in recent years within some cities, particularly the city of Cité Soleil, solicited and received GAVI’s support for the development of a model to be followed so as to increase vaccination coverage in Haiti. This model was designed to address the low vaccination coverage in Cité Soleil under the leadership of the directorate of the EPI as well as other stakeholders, the Mayor’s Office, multi-faceted community health workers and Cité Soleil community leaders.

The model provides for short, medium and long term interventions drawn from the solutions identified by stakeholders, best practices from other countries, and JSI’s experience in vaccination.
