The MOMENTUM Routine Immunization Transformation and Equity project is part of a suite of innovative awards funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) to holistically improve family planning and maternal and child health in partner countries around the world. The project applies best practices and explores innovations to increase equitable immunization coverage in USAID-supported countries around the globe. It works to build countries’ capacity to identify and overcome barriers to reaching zero-dose and under-immunized children and older populations with lifesaving vaccines and other integrated health services. The project also contributes to ongoing global efforts to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on immunization services and support countries to prepare for and introduce vaccines against COVID-19 once they are available. MOMENTUM Routine Immunization Transformation and Equity works at multiple levels and in alignment with global strategies such as the Immunization Agenda 2030 and Gavi 5.0.
The project was awarded to JSI Research & Training Institute Inc., and their sub-partners PATH, Accenture Development Partnerships, Results for Development, Gobee Group, CORE Group, and The Manoff Group. The consortium brings a track record in shaping global direction and will collaborate with local partners to improve immunization outcomes and build on the accomplishments and learnings.
