Mapping zero-dose populations: conflict, remote rural, urban poor (Phase II)

Project overview

This work builds on Mapping Zero-Dose Populations: conflict, remote rural, urban poor (Phase I, funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation) to extend the work on quantifying the size and distribution of key marginalized populations and over-laying them with data on sub-national vaccination coverage to determine the number and distribution of un/under-vaccinated children within each of these groups. Providing additional insights into other potentially relevant settings as well as drivers and characteristics of zero-dose to support planning of country strategies.

Research interests

  • Developing approaches to map population distributions, demographics and dynamics through complementing traditional datasources (census, survey, registries) with new forms of geospatial data from e.g. satellite imagery and mobile devices.
  • Understanding the drivers of small area heterogeneities in population health and development in low and middle income settings.
