Project Brief:

"Impact assessment of the SALT (Stimulate, Appreciate, Learn, and Transfer) approach of community engagement to increase immunisation coverage through ownership - a mixed methods study in Assam, India"

The proposed intervention is based on the premise that communities think and act for themselves, and that communities have the capacity to change themselves SALT employs facilitated conversations to elicit community strengths, increase self-awareness and stimulate self-confidence and action. The 3 years program will be implemented in three districts in rural Assam India. We intend to evaluate the impact of the proposed intervention on coverage related outcomes around three key measures- full immunization coverage (FIC) in children 12-23 months old, coverage for different doses of DPT (diphtheria-pertussis-tetanus) vaccine and dropout between the first and third dose in 6-23 month old children. Moreover, we will assess the effect of the intervention on other vaccination-related outcomes - age-appropriate vaccination, coverage among tribal populations and groups living in remote locations, inequities in coverage by gender and birth order, in enhancing awareness about service provision, and promoting utilization of preventive services. We will also monitor indicators along the causal chain - knowledge, attitudes, and practices of the mothers/caregivers. We will adopt a village-level randomized controlled trial (RCT) design to evaluate the impact of the community-led intervention on vaccination coverage related indicators.
