Project Briefer: Strengthening Vaccination Programs in Haiti’s Urban Communities


This project briefer outlines JSI’s efforts to strengthen urban immunization programs in Cité Soleil, an urban commune located within the Port au Prince metropolitan area in Haiti.

This Briefer contains information on the initial results of the situational analysis regarding problems, mainly within the immunization system, such as unreliable vaccine supply, long wait times, poor interpersonal and client relations, poor data quality and reporting, gaps in knowledge about the target population, and insecurity.

Continued focus on effective interventions that prioritize areas with the highest numbers of unimmunized, engaging a wide-range of health and non-health stakeholders to improve service delivery, building credibility with quality technical assistance, and coaching health professionals can and should be adapted and scaled up in other municipalities with low coverage to improve routine immunization systems in poor urban areas. This briefer is useful for organizations working on improving routine immunization in urban areas.
