Dr Jerico Pardosi and Dr Anita Heywood in collaboration with our SPHCM alumni (Yuana Margarets Agustin Hadjo) from Indonesia have been selected as one of the 25 best applications from a total of 246 grant application through the Alumni Grant Scheme 2017 Round 2 by the Australian Embassy in Indonesia on Developing integrated immunisation and surveillance program evaluation tools in East Nusa Tenggara Timur project.

The seed funding is aimed to provide alumni with opportunities to enhance their skills and knowledge gained to improve practice in their professional fields and communities and to strengthen professional linkages and partnerships between alumni and the Australian educational institution. This project will provide assistance to Health Department in Kupang City to identify the measles program components and improve the existing evaluation tools.

Focus group discussions and in-depth interviews will be conducted with the health staff. Refreshing course for immunisation and surveillance officers has been conducted on 3rd-5th May in Kupang, East Nusa Tenggara with East Nusa Tenggara (NTT) provincial health office, district health office and technical support from local UNICEF Kupang office. Dr Pardosi and Dr Heywood will participate in the Roundtable Discussion in late June 2018.

It is expected that this project would improve the procedures and practices for eliminating measles in Kupang City, East Nusa Tenggara Timur.
