Innovations in Increasing Immunisation Evidence Programme
A major challenge in the fight against vaccine-preventable deaths and diseases is the limited evidence available on innovative and successful community-based approaches for expanding immunisation coverage in countries with low or stagnating vaccination rates. To help fill this evidence gap, 3ie is supporting seven formative evaluations and seven impact evaluations.
Evidence from this programme will identify what works to engage communities in increasing immunisation and test the feasibility and effectiveness of innovative and new interventions. 3ie has awarded two types of grants:
- Formative evaluation of pilot programmes that use previously untried or untested approaches in engaging communities in Pakistan, Myanmar and two grants each in Ethiopia, Nigeria; and
- One impact evaluation grant each in Ethiopia, Nigeria and Uganda, and four grants in India.
This programme is supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
