Project Deliverables

Deliverable 2.2 (WP2) Dissemination Plan

The Dissemination and Communication Plan (DCP) of AcToVax4NAM outlines the consortium strategy to be followed in order to achieve the project's aim which is to enhance vaccination access for newly arrived migrants (NAMs). The plan outlines the means towards effective communication among partners and the efficient distribution of project outcomes to relevant actors and stakeholders across all partner countries. It encompasses a project summary, identifies the intended recipients of communication efforts, and outlines the broader strategy for sharing project information and results, while it also includes planned dissemination activities and partner-generated stakeholder maps. The stakeholder maps play a pivotal role throughout the project, contributing significantly to the dissemination and the overall goal of improving vaccination rates in NAMs by enhancing system-based Vaccination Literacy (VL). The DCP serves as the primary, up-to-date reference for all consortium partners, guiding them in communicating and sharing results within the defined target groups and key stakeholders in the consortium countries. It remains a dynamic document, subject to updates in response to unforeseen risks, changes, or issues that may arise during the project's course.

Deliverable 4.1 (WP4) National Reception System and Vaccination Policies for NAM

The report sets out to describe existing immunization guidelines, reception system and vaccination offered to NAM in Consortium Countries. Following a common protocol, a desktop non-systematic review of European and national level guidelines and recommendations on immunization offer and practice for NAM was conducted by ISS and Sapienza, with the cooperation of the other members of the Consortium for available materials in local language within their respective countries. Moreover, a standard data collection template/format was developed by ISS/Sapienza in order to collect in a standardised way information by consortium country on A) Dimension of immigration and reception system; B) National Health System (NHS); C) Immunization services and vaccination offer.

Deliverable 4.2 (WP4) General Conceptual Framework

Based on the results of the tasks of the Work Package 4, a General Conceptual Framework (GCF) has been developed for understanding “How to improve the vaccination coverage for NAM” through the characterization and critical analysis of the system barriers and possible solutions in the logic steps required for the optimal delivery of an inclusive immunisation program for NAM. It considers all steps taken in the health care pathway from access to appropriate health services to completion of needed vaccination, addressing also dropout, and adopting a life‐course approach to immunization for children, adolescents, adults and elderly.

Deliverable 5.1 (WP5) Migrant-centered and migrant-sensitive Glossary of vaccination essential definitions

This document outlines the process behind drafting, validating, and translating the Glossary of Essential Vaccination Terms for the ActoVax4NAM project. Sapienza led the development of this glossary, aligning with the project's objective of enhancing networking capacity among institutional and non-institutional organisations to address vaccine literacy and migrant sensitivity in the healthcare system, particularly regarding newly arrived migrants (NAM) immunisation. The glossary aims to facilitate vaccination access for NAM and improve the healthcare system's responsiveness to vaccine literacy. By providing relevant professionals with easily accessible vaccine information, it strengthens their ability to advocate for NAM’s vaccination access.

D5.2 (WP5) Training Materials & Tools

This document serves as the final output of the project Task 5.2, which enhances vaccination literacy (VL) and responsiveness within healthcare systems. It targets professionals for health and operators professionals for health to bolster their capacity building skills and cultural sensitivity in promoting active immunisation of Newly Arrived Migrants (NAM). Included are the Training Guide, evaluation tools used during implementation, and the Organizational Vaccination Literacy Exploratory Survey questionnaire. The document outlines the development process of these materials and tools. They are designed to be adaptable to other research or training contexts with similar objectives.

Deliverable 6.1 (WP6) “Repository/Database of tools to overcome system barriers with relevant search filters”.

Deliverable 6.1 describes how the online Repository of Tools to address barriers to vaccination faced by NAMs was developed. The Repository of tools is available from the project's website. This Repository serves as a comprehensive resource for healthcare and social care professionals to address vaccination barriers for NAMs. It includes tools such as guidelines, leaflets, trainings, and methodologies categorized by their relevance to different stages of the vaccination process. The repository/database of tools is designed to be user-friendly, catering to both healthcare professionals and individuals interested in promoting vaccination for NAMs. It is closely aligned with the project's conceptual framework, which identifies five sequential hubs in the vaccination pathway: entitlement, reachability, adherence vs. hesitancy, achievement, and evaluation. Each consortium country contributed country-specific tools to the repository, reflecting region or culture-specific challenges. The tools are categorized based on their relevance to different barrier hubs, such as adherence, entitlement, reachability, achievement, and evaluation and are continuously updated by project partners to ensure relevance and effectiveness. Further research may provide insights for the development of new tools tailored to specific country or context needs.

Deliverable 6.2 (WP6) One Flowchart per Consortium Country Available in English and all Consortium Languages

This report describes the process of developing and validating action-oriented flowcharts tailored to the AcToVax4NAM consortium countries to improve vaccination access for Newly Arrived Migrants (NAM). These tools, conceptualised from the General Conceptual Framework (GCF) established in WP4, address the entire NAM health pathway, detailing a logical sequence of steps towards vaccination. The summary details the flowcharts’ effort to mitigate specific barriers, while providing targeted solutions and tools. Highlighting the qualitative approach to validation, it emphasises expert feedback’s critical role in enhancing the applicability and usefulness of the flowcharts.
