RISE State Launches

The National Launch of the RISE was followed by the launch at the state level on the following dates:

  • Pune, Maharashtra 08 January 2020
  • Chennai, Tamil Nadu 09 January 2020
  • Bhubaneswar, Odisha 14 January 2020
  • Shimla, Himachal Pradesh 24 January 2020
  • Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh 06 February 2020

In each workshop, we had senior state government officials, representatives of partner organizations and also program managers from the respective district of intervention. The impressive turnout was testimony that RISE was already a priority for the state governments and we had their support right from the beginning.

For the orientation of different cadres of health workers on the RISE app, the JSI team decided to follow a cascade approach. A pool of master trainers was invited in each state launch and oriented on the RISE App at the State Training of Trainers (ToT). The one-day program included discussions on technical component and a hands-on demonstration of the application. Training methodology was the same in all 5 state ToTs (PPT demonstration, live demonstration and hands-on), however, organizing and scheduling were different in each state. The people trained during the State ToTs were entrusted to further conduct trainings of health workers (the end-users of the application) in their respective blocks/planning units. The entire capacity building exercise was carried out in the months of Jan-Feb 2020.

We would like to acknowledge the wonderful work done by program managers who went on to successfully conduct block level trainings in each intervention district. It was their efforts and their facilitation skills that helped vaccinators understand the RISE app so that they were able to easily access each module and obtain their e-certificates during the implementation stage.
