Strengthening Immunization for the Urban Poor: Experiences and Lessons Learned from Five Country Studies


With support from Gavi, in 2017 and 2018, JSI Research & Training Institute, Inc. (JSI) reviewed the immunization status of the urban poor communities in metropolitan centers of five countries: the Democratic Republic of Congo, Ghana, Haiti, Kenya, and Kyrgyzstan. The findings from JSI’s analysis contributed to the identification of barriers to access and utilization of immunization services facing urban poor communities, and the development of short- and long-term recommendations to address these barriers.

This document identifies cross-cutting conclusions from the analyses and synthesizes JSI's experiences for countries to adapt to their specific contexts.
