PATH is a global organization that works to accelerate health equity by bringing together public institutions, businesses, social enterprises, and investors to solve the world’s most pressing health challenges. With expertise in science, health, economics, technology, advocacy, and dozens of other specialties, PATH develops and scales solutions—including vaccines, drugs, devices, diagnostics, and innovative approaches to strengthening health systems worldwide. Working in Vietnam since the early 1980s, PATH established a permanent office in Hanoi in 1997, and an office in Ho Chi Minh City in 2014.

With funding from Margaret A. Cargill Philanthropies, PATH is working with its partners to conduct a project for sustaining Japanese Encephalitis (JE) vaccination programs in Laos and Cambodia with aim to reduce mortality and morbidity of children due to JE disease by making JE vaccination programs in these two countries more effective and sustainable. In Laos, PATH will help improve JE and other immunization coverages to protect children from JE and other vaccine preventable diseases. In the first phase of the project, PATH will pilot intervention packages in 3 selected provinces and then will expand the piloted intervention in phase 2 to other Lao provinces, and probably to Cambodia.

PATH is currently recruiting for a local intern based at PATH office in Hanoi to design education and communication (IEC) messages, and e-learning modules in cartoon and/or animated cartoon clips. The intern will work under the management of PATH’s Asia Regional Technical Advisor.

Project overview: 

This project will emphasize on strengthening capacity of service providers, including program managers, and health workers in routine immunization delivery; and create demand for immunization for community and parents of eligible children. Activities for strengthening capacity for service providers in immunization will include training via e-learning with a series of multimedia learning modules. Creating demand for the JE and other vaccines under national immunization program for community and parents of eligible children will be done using innovative methods such as broadcasting information, education and communication (IEC) messages and immunization quiz in video clips of cartoon, animated cartoon or equivalent to be sent via existing popular communication tools such as WhatsApp or a similar applicable social app.

  • how to evaluate education programs for both parents/community and health workers
  • how to apply different animation techniques
