RFP for Intensified Mission Indradhanush Coverage Survey

Background and Context

Immunization against preventable childhood diseases is the right of every child.    With    a    view    to  providing this right, the Government of India launched the Universal Immunization Programme (UIP) in 1985, one of the largest health programs of its kind in the world, to cater to a birth cohort of 2.6 crore infants, and around 3 crore pregnant women every year.

The programme provides vaccination against 8 life-threatening diseases (diphtheria, whooping cough, Haemophilus influenzatype B (Hib), tetanus, polio, tuberculosis, measles and hepatitis B) in the entirecountry.  In  addition,  vaccination  against  Japanese  Encephalitis  (JE)  is  being  provided  in  the  selected endemic districts/states of the country. Rotavirus vaccine (RVV) introduction has been scaled up in nine states, Pneumococcal Conjugate Vaccine (PCV) is being introduced in the                routine immunization program of three select states with further expansion planned in  a phased     manner and Measles Rubella (MR) Vaccine has been introduced in 5 states/UTs following a wide age range (9 months to 15 years) MR vaccination campaign.

Objectives of the Assignment

The key objectives of the IMI Evaluation Survey are:

  • To assess the change in immunization coverage rates from existing baseline levels (NFHS4) and post IMI rounds;
  • To  analyze  change  in  drop-out  and  left-out  rates  from  existing  baseline  levels  and  post  IMI  rounds

Work Description, Activities and Geographical Scope Of The Assignment

IMI Coverage Survey Round-1, will cover 60 districts of Uttar Pradesh. Final list of districts and number of clusters will be provided by MOHFW/UNDP.

In each district (rural/urban), Household Survey will cover nearly 900 households, with total target of approximately 55,000 completed questionnaires. 

Survey methodology is based on WHO Vaccination Coverage Cluster Survey technique.

Cluster  surveys  can  overcome  the  shortcomings  of  administrative  reports,  and  are  more  feasible  to  implement than surveys that use a simple random sample because fieldwork is concentrated in a given number of clusters

Target Population:

  1. Children aged 12-23 months;
  2. Children in age group 0- 12 months
  3. Pregnant women or women who gave birth in the last 6 months.

Minimum Requirement

  • Data collection team should have minimum five years of experience in health and should include at least one woman in each team 26
  • The  agency  is  expected  to  have  sufficient  number  of  supervisors  (one  per  team)  who  has  experience  in  supervising  the  large-scale  data  collection.  In  their  respective  proposals,  the  agencies  are  expected  to  provide  details  of  steps  proposed  to  be  undertaken  to  ensure  data  quality assurance and informed consent procedures
