Ona and PATH in Zambia for OpenSRP Immunization Project

Working with the Ministry of Health (MOH), the BID Initiative is creating a culture of data use in the health service to increase access to immunization data and data-based decision-making to improve health outcomes for children. This will be done using tools such as a data use guide, data use campaign, supportive supervision, and the electronic immunization registry (EIR). Together with the MOH, we have partnered with Ona to implement OpenSRP as the immunization registry platform.
