USAID/Senegal Building a Resilient Health System (BRHS) Project Doubles COVID-19 Vaccination Rate in One Month

This technical brief highlights the favorable results of the pilot COVID-19 Vaccination Acceleration Initiative (CVAI) that took place in Kaffrine, Senegal in July 2022. The Building a Resilient Health System (BRHS) project developed a strategy to design and support a CVAI across nine of Senegal’s 14 regions. BRHS worked with USAID and the Senegalese Ministry of Health and Social Action (MSAS) to pilot the initiative in the Kaffrine region, starting with Kaffrine district. With several partners involved, the CVAI doubled one-dose COVID-19 rates in one month from 10% to 19% and increased the coverage rate for full vaccination from 7.7% to 13% in the region.
