The DFF project, implemented in partnership with GAVI, the Vaccine Alliance and the local government, focuses on implementing a decentralized financing mechanism to improve immunization coverage in Niger. ASKAAN aims to increase immunization coverage and reduce the number of children missing doses, with a particular focus on marginalized communities facing accessibility challenges. The project has achieved significant milestones, including the development of an innovative decentralized financing model that can directly allocate resources for immunization activities down to the level of integrated health centers. The project also includes a robust community engagement strategy throughout the planning, implementation and monitoring phases of immunization activities. In addition, the project has established a monitoring system to track the implementation of the decentralized financing mechanism and measure vaccination performance, coverage and quality of services provided.
