A consultative meeting was held on 26 September 2017 with key implementing partners working on various aspects of immunization in Pakistan. These included representatives from CHIP, JICA, RSPN, WHO, UNICEF, Mercy Corps, USAID and JSI in Pakistan. The meeting took place at CCPP office in Islamabad.
Following a presentation on the development of a Global Interpersonal Communication for Immunization toolkit for frontline workers, the discussion mainly focused on donor coordination and training on IPC skills and supportive supervision.
The development work for the toolkit is being spearheaded by Center’s parent organization Johns Hopkins Center for Communication Programs for UNICEF Headquarters. Center is providing assistance in research and design activities in Pakistan. The objective of the research is to identify key communication constraints (including structural, facility, and community barriers) as well as current best practices, and gain additional insights to inform the development of the global package for frontline workers.
