BID Initiative Generic Tools

, ,
Global

Strategic reuse of appropriate tools is one of the core principles of the BID Initiative. Over the last five years, we have created several planning, implementation, and data strengthening tools for use in Tanzania and Zambia. We have taken the most frequently used tools from both countries and made them generic. We are sharing the tools here for countries to reuse and modify for their specific needs. Below are the categories of the tools based on their intended use, along with more information about how each was used.

Accelerating Harmonization in Digital Health

, , ,

Digital tools play an important role in supporting front-line health workers who deliver primary care. This paper, which appears in Volume 17 of World Health and Population, explores the current state of efforts undertaken to move away from single-purpose applications of digital health towards integrated systems and solutions that align with national strategies. Through examples from health information systems, data and health worker training, this paper demonstrates how governments and stakeholders are working to integrate digital health services. It emphasizes three factors as crucial for this integration: development and implementation of national digital health strategies; technical interoperability and collaborative approaches to ensure that digital health has an impact on the primary care level. Consolidation of technologies will enable an integrated, scalable approach to the use of digital health to support health workers. Laurie Werner, Global Director of the BID Initiative, and Amanda BenDor, Technical Program Manager for PATH's Digital Health Program, are co-authors of this paper.

BLN Webinar: Technology Solutions for Routine Immunization Challenges in Nigeria

, , ,
Nigeria

The BID Learning Network (BLN) invites you to watch a webinar entitled “Technology Solutions to Routine Immunization Challenges in Nigeria.” End-to-end supply chain and logistics systems are key components of successful immunization programs. However, in Nigeria, supply chain and logistics systems have encountered numerous challenges particularly on the supply side, such as incomplete and inadequate data on commodity turnover and late deliveries to primary health centers (PHCs). To address these challenges, eHealth Africa (eHA) in close collaboration with the Kano State Primary Health Care Management Board (KPHCMB) developed the Logistics Management Information System (LoMIS).
