Project Overview 
Under the GAVI Health System Strengthening Phase 2 Grant for India, JSIPL has been awarded a project called Rapid Immunization Skill Enhancement (RISE). The objective of RISE is to develop a constructive, interactive, continuous and an adaptable knowledge building system for program managers, medical officers, health workers and mobilisers regarding the guidelines and updates in the Universal Immunization Program. The RISE package had been developed with a capacity-building framework in mind to cater to the frontline health workers and supervisors. RISE has been implemented by JSIPL as a pilot in 5 states for training of frontline immunization workers and has been accepted very well by the trainees and the health system overall. Buoyed with the encouraging outcome of this complementary capacity building mechanism, Govt of India is planning to scale it up across the country in a phased manner. Over the last 2 years, RISE has been scaled up in more than 100 districts over 6 states and 35000 health works in these districts are using RISE currently. We have obtained further long term (2023-26) funding support from Gavi towards phased pan India scale up of RISE under the stewardship of MoHFW, Govt of India.
