Nepal Little Jab Book

Save the Children has launched the Nepal ‘Little Jab Book’ developed in collaboration with Busara Center for Behavioral Economics, and Common Thread. The playbook focuses on six key behavioral challenges which restricts vaccine uptake and presents contextual and hackable behavior change actions to strengthen vaccine uptake and confidence amongst parents, young people, and health workers in Nepal.

The playbook is designed for social behavior change (SBC) practitioners, development agencies, local government officials, health staffs, and media, and the insights are guided by the research conducted in Madhesh Pradhesh (formerly known as, Province 2).

The Nepal Little Jab Book details down evidence and solutions to inspire vaccine uptake in people who are concerned about the side effects of the vaccine, challenged by trust towards available vaccines, or those looking for social endorsement in behest of various empirical and normative expectations.
