Drawing on nearly half a century of experience in health workforce development and broad global expertise in assisting the rollout of various immunization campaigns, Jhpiego is among those now at the forefront of the fight against COVID-19.
Our teams are ready to support COVID-19 vaccine planning, introduction and scale-up in more than 30 countries across Africa, Asia and Latin America, and we have partnered with Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, to provide need-based support for the vaccine rollout in 15 countries.
Our work includes technical assistance to the governments of Afghanistan, Ghana, Lesotho, Liberia, Nigeria, Pakistan and South Africa; evidence generation in other countries; and planning, training and scale-up support in the United States.
Jhpiego is a proven leader in training vaccinators, community health workers and others supporting vaccination efforts and ensuring quality at vaccination sites. We are also conducting monitoring and surveillance, generating demand and building community confidence in immunization. Our reputation comes in part from having worked in readiness, introduction and scale-up of the human papillomavirus vaccine in Côte d’Ivoire, Ethiopia, India, Liberia, Pakistan, Tanzania and Zambia, and on routine childhood immunization in Pakistan and elsewhere.
