Pemerintah Kanada Melibatkan ‘Local Leader’ untuk Meningkatkan Capaian Imunisasi di Komunitas Under-Immunized

12.1.1. Recommendation #1: Target outreach and mobile clinics to areas with low coverage

Community outreach is a proactive method of reaching under-immunized communities and improving health equity. Immediate efforts should introduce mobile outreach clinics to communities with the lowest access to immunization services and clinics and known under-immunization. By developing effective relationships with local leaders, outreach clinics can also create new lines of influence and vaccine demand among communities. Provincial assessment of required capital should begin immediately, with procurement of buses or vans and distribution of personnel following in the short term.

Menurut saya, strategi melibatkan pimpinan komunitas lokal untuk meningkatkan capaian imunisasi dapat diaplikasikan di Indonesia dengan pertimbangan:
1) model kepemimpinan ‘Pak RT-Pak RW’ efektif untuk menggerakkan masyarakat pedesaan

2) masih banyak daerah pedesaan/pegunungan dengan angka capaian imunisasi rendah

3) perlu dibangun sistem pelaporan kelahiran anak dan sistem monitoring imunisasi dari puskesmas yang menjangkau hingga ke tingkat RT-RW. Pendataan oleh RT-RW justru bisa lebih aktual karena mendata secara de facto; mengingat di daerah pedesaan banyak kelahiran di luar fasilitas kesehatan terdaftar.
