STRENGTHENING ROUTINE IMMUNIZATION IN 9 POLIO AFFECTED PROVINCES (KANDAHAR PROVINCE)
BARAN is currently implementing this project to increase routine Expanded Program on Immunization (EPI) coverage among children residing in rural areas of the Kandahar province through expanding EPI fixed, outreach and mobile services in white and underserved areas.
The project aims to increase Penta-3 vaccine coverage, reduce missed opportunities for vaccination and to reach un-immunized and under-immunized children in white and underserved areas through improved access and utilization of routine EPI services.
Through this project, we are delivering the standard MoPH package of EPI (based on BPHS and National EPI policy and strategy) by recruited of 92 additional vaccinators for the underserved populations in the rural areas of Kandahar province.
This project is funded by GAVI Alliance, started in August 2020 and will be ended in August 2021.
