The project aims at strengthening  the capacity of the national vaccine fund to sustain high immunization coverage nationally, to contribute to the efforts of disease elimination and focus on ‘hard-to-reach’ districts by applying the ‘Reach Every District’ (RED) Strategy. It will improve the knowledge and practice of families and care givers on preventable causes of child deaths notably acute respiratory infections and diarrhoeal diseases. The project will also address the new and emerging trend of mortality associated with injuries and advocate for implementation of policies on the prevention and care of childhood injuries. The project will support the National micronutrient deficiency and prevention strategy to control micronutrient deficiencies especially vitamin D and iron and sustain Universal Salt Iodisation. Fortification of food with iron and vitamins will be pursued as a long term strategy for the elimination of micro-nutrient deficiencies.
