The Boost Community is excited to announce the launch of:
Through this new series, Boost will surface elements of real-time immunization activities or programs that demonstrate innovation or adaptability. "Sparks" will focus on unique or impactful solutions during pivotal moments that result in the increase of equitable vaccine access and demand in communities all over the world.
A Spark can include, but is not limited to:
⚡ The successful rollout of a tool
⚡ Notable work from a specific immunization professional
⚡ A key lesson learned (success or failure) from an immunization activity
⚡ An adaptive approach to overcoming a challenge
⚡ The development of an impactful partnership
Sparks will take the form of a short publication, video or audio clip that will be shared through the Boost Community via the Bright Spots microsite. By disseminating these insights widely, we will foster a space of collaboration and learning that focuses on the improvement of immunization efforts everywhere.
Our Inaugural Spark
Our first Spark highlights the work of Boost member Sohini Sanyal, a learning and capacity building specialist located in India. Sohini currently supports the content development and dissemination of Rapid Immunization Skill Enhancement, an interactive, virtual tool to improve vaccinator capacity across India. Listen along as she shares about this virtual learning tool, some challenges that she faced and her key lessons learned throughout the project.
