Applying the Reaching Every District/Reaching Every Child (RED/REC) approach to strengthen routine immunization in five health districts in Burkina Faso

In 2017, MCSP with Global health Security Agenda (GHSA) funding, began supporting the Burkina Faso Ministry of Health’s (MOH) routine immunization strengthening efforts in five districts of Burkina Faso. A major goal of MCSP’s support was to help the MOH sustain existing successes in routine immunization coverage while closing gaps in reaching the unvaccinated and under-vaccinated.

In August 2018, the MOH and MCSP conducted a rapid assessment in the five districts to assess progress and challenges in Reaching Every District/Reaching Every Child (RED/REC) implementation. In response to these findings, the MOH Department of Prevention through Vaccinations, with MCSP’s support, developed a strategy to build the skills of staff responsible for planning, implementing, and monitoring the Expanded Program on Immunization in MCSP-supported regions, districts, and health facilities.
