Innovating to Vaccinate Every Child in Uganda through Strengthening Subnational Management


This final report details the lessons learned from the Stronger Systems for Routine Immunization Project (SS4RI) project. JSI Research & Training Institute, Inc., with funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, implemented the SS4RI project which assisted the Ministry of Health and Uganda National Expanded Programme on Immunization (MOH/UNEPI) to improve managerial capacity for routine immunization (RI) services across ten districts from 2014 to 2019. JSI enhanced the existing reaching every child/community approach used in Uganda to create Reaching Every Community using quality improvement to strengthen the delivery, quality, and utilization of RI services.

By the project’s end, there was a 42% increase in number of communities reached with RI services; there was a doubling in the number of immunization sessions both scheduled and conducted by the end of the project; and in
SS4RI-supported districts saw a five-fold increase from baseline in the number of health facilities with up-to-date microplans. JSI/SS4RI. 2020.
