Improving Immunization Coverage in Uganda
The Air-Bel center is thrilled to share a report on the results of a pilot of the mobile health application Comm-Care that IRC recently finished in Uganda. The application was deployed in rural clinics to help local community health workers track the vaccine status of local children, and use the data to more accurately target outreach to children who were missing shots.
The results show that the use of mHealth devices could be a promising way to support rural communities in increasing vaccine coverage. Later this year, we are planning to scale this approach up to 5,000 families and rigorously test it in an impact evaluation, and excited to continue driving the adoption of new technologies in fragile contexts.
