The Scholar sought to increase immunization performance by finding children lost to follow up, focusing on lower performing districts. The Scholar’s project focused on developing community linkages, working with Civil Society Organisations to outreach communities and to implement household visits by health community workers.  Community health workers were able to locate and vaccinate 99% of the children who were lost to follow up.
