In an ongoing effort to shine a light on voices of innovation and adaptability in the immunization sector, Boost supports a storytelling initiative called Bright Spots, which highlight stories of grassroots-driven process improvement in routine immunization service delivery. Learn more about this initiative.
This third round of Bright Spots includes six new stories focused on key lessons learned from implementing immunization programs during the COVID-19 pandemic as well as returning to routine immunization. Given the current infodemic, we also wanted to emphasize stories that addressed misinformation and strengthened vaccine acceptance and demand in communities leading to vaccine uptake.
We hope that these Bright Spots shine a light on the work that is happening on the ground and inspire immunization professionals everywhere to learn, adapt and take action to drive behavior change and build back better.
The first set of stories from this round are now live on our Bright Spots website. More stories will be released in the coming weeks!
