The objective of this study is to contribute to understanding of the vaccine roll out in inner-city informal settlements and to help ensure equity in vaccine distribution.

The project will gather data through a fortnightly survey of community leaders in inner-city settlements in major towns. The intention behind monitoring in these areas is that they are under-serviced and a lack of affordable accommodation leads to over-crowding. Hence they are high-risk locations with respect to Covid-19. The survey will ask about the scale of vaccine roll-out, the basis on which it is taking place (which vaccine, who is included, what it costs) and the take-up of the vaccine in those communities.

It is intended that the provision of this data will enable relevant local professionals and national level advocacy groups to monitor vaccine rollout for inner-city informal settlement residents, identify potential inequalities in access, and enable public pressure from residents’ associations and grassroots organizations to rectify this situation as required.
