Online Volunteers will be required to conduct a literature review into immunization programs in India; the trend of immunization rates over the past few decades; the impact of COVID-19 on routine childhood immunization rates and known barriers and misinformation contributing to lower rates of immunization.

The second stage of this project will involve Online Volunteers interfacing with public health agencies and other NGOs in India, to conduct interviews and gather qualitative data surrounding barriers to immunizations.

We are looking for 6 Online Volunteers who have experience in research with excellent writing skills. The task will include the following responsibilities: - Discuss and determine parameters for the research - Identify and gather sources - Conduct research - Develop short report on findings

The average estimated workload is expected to include roughly reviewing 5-7 documents (these can include articles, studies etc.) over the course of the assignment duration.

The Online Volunteers will have the opportunity to build connections with the Core Team at Child Awareness Project and learn about the ways in which research on barriers to childhood immunizations can support campaigns to address this and improve rates of childhood immunization in India.

Applicants familiar with Indian public health systems will be given preference.

Candidates should have strong research and analytical skills. Background knowledge and working experience in public health, and the Indian Subcontinent is desirable. A degree in a related field is considered an asset.
