Evaluations of Innovative Community Engagement Approaches to Increase Immunisation Coverage in Gavi-eligivle countries



New 3ie grant: Evaluations of innovative community engagement approaches to increase  immunisation coverage in Gavi-eligible countries
The International Initiative for Impact Evaluation (3ie)requests proposals for formative evaluations and impact evaluations of programmes that have adopted innovative approaches to community engagement for increasing immunisation coverage in Gavi-eligible countries. Where an organisation is able to demonstrate the innovative aspect of a programme, 3ie can provide some financial support for the implementation of the programme along with its evaluation.
The evaluations are expected to generate new evidence about what works to engage communities in increasing immunisation coverage, test the feasibility and effectiveness of these approaches and inform their scale up.
