Sustaining Immunization Gains for All Communities: Lessons from Implementation of the RED-QI Approach

SHARE THIS

The RED-QI approach, implemented in Ethiopia by JSI Research & Training Institute, Inc., beginning in 2011, worked to improve the performance of the immunization system in 103 woredas (districts)—about two-thirds of which have limited infrastructure and remote communities, including nomadic populations. JSI’s bottom-up approach—working at the facility and woreda level to integrate quality improvement into the existing national immunization strategy—Reaching Every District (RED)—resulted in immunization system improvements. 

This brief describes summary findings from an inquiry on the elements of RED-QI that were sustained beyond direct technical support and the factors that contributed to the continuation (or non-continuation) of these activities. The findings are also described in a full report. JSI, Universal Immunization through Improving Family Health Services Project. 2020.
