"A mobile immunization strategy underscores the importance of community-driven approaches to improve the access and utilization of immunization services."

Inequities driven by differences in place of residence and socio-economic status persist among different communities, hindering the achievement of sustained performance on immunisation indicators. Community-based Reach Every Child (REC) interventions at the sub-county and county level are among the "bottom-up" strategies deployed to reduce these local inequities. This study determines the effect of an enhanced door-to-door immunisation strategy on improving immunisation coverage in hard-to-reach areas of Migori, Kenya.
