Monique Lacey Apologies for the slow response on my end. Yes, the church in this particular community does partner with the local clinic however it has not yet to-date worked together towards full community immunization, which would take the partnership to a new level. We've found that linking church volunteers to the caregiver and the CHW/local clinic is also very influential in this process, to help caregivers remember key dates, etc. We too think that this could be an exciting prospect for this community in rural Malawi! Thank-you for the encouragement!
Thank-you Naki J ! We are pleased to see how the church grows as a centerpiece to serving the community after a few years (or less) of trainings and encouragement; we look forward to being able to partner with the local health clinics and CHWs to more specifically target low immunization rates!
BAGAYA MONICA Apologies for not responding sooner, but thank-you for taking the time to share your idea in more depth. Having lived in Kampala for a little bit of time, that is true that there are so many men at boda boda stations who would be able to easily transport their child to the clinic since their work is not always busy! Best of luck on finalizing your idea in the next few hours!
