The road to achieving complete vaccination coverage in Bihar continues to be a challenge. While the government has been working rigorously towards 100% coverage, pushing vaccination safety, closing in on the supply gaps that existed earlier and reiterating the value of two dose uptake; there is a need to separately look at special groups and vulnerable populations that are slipping through the cracks.
The Packard Foundation supported RECOVER project, an embedded partnership between Project Concern International (PCI) and the Vihara Innovation Team, is actively supporting the Government of Bihar’s endeavour to achieve 100% vaccination coverage.
Where a lot of important information was falling through the cracks, tools to create a nudge for FLWs to know what needs to reiterate became very crucial. Having something physical in hand added to the formality of this vaccination process helping beneficiaries give some thought to how this is benefiting them. Collaterals including Tokens, House
and Mobile stickers plus an IEC leaflet with counseling tips+tricks, have already been tested on the field and iterated to adapt as per the challenges each collateral is trying to address.
