Thank you for participating and sharing your idea with us.
It will be interesting to know, that other than spreading awareness amongst the people.
How are you creating incentives for caregivers and mothers to encourage them to show up for vaccination? The idea of the gift for best mom sounds great! Could you build on it further.
