Maidah commented on Women Ambassadors for Vaccine Education (WAVE)

Thanks for your questions Amanda Patterson, World Relief 
Our secondary research showed that there were several mobile clinics already functioning in East Africa (Unite4Africa’s, Odulair Mobile Clinics Africa). Ideally, we'd want to collaborate with such organizations that are also willing to be flexible in scheduling their visits in accordance with immunization forecasts.
As for the roles, we foresee one of the roles of our WAVE ambassadors as being that of a coordinator for the clinic visits and a reaffirming presence at the immunization site. Once they are informed that a clinic will be arriving, they will disseminate this information among their community and act as a point person.

Thanks for the details, Amanda! This was really helpful.

Thanks for this Temba Vicent , it really helps clarify things. I am very impressed by how well thought out and comprehensive your idea is. I look forward to seeing how it evolves.
