Formative & Summative Evaluations
Sabin, in their previous work identified that immunisation professionals play a vital role in delivering one of the world’s most powerful health interventions: vaccines. Yet, they are faced with a number of challenges which are summarised in three broad categories; 1) isolation (not having channels to communicate with peers working in other locations), 2) burn out and fatigue which leads to high turnover and 3) complex environments with ambiguous targets and little resources to achieve them. Boost Community Platform is a global community where immunisation professionals connect, learn and lead. Its mission is to foster a global community that enables immunisation professionals to connect with peers and experts, learn skills that build capacity and advance careers, and lead immunisation programs in challenging contexts. Its vision is a world in which every immunisation professional is empowered to advance in their careers and accelerate change in their communities. Sabin role in the program is that of an adviser, a convener, and a catalyst of systemic change. It works at the country and global level to strengthen policy, secure financing, and build political will for country ownership of immunisation.
