The BID Learning Network (BLN) invites you to a webinar presentation on “Piloting of the e-Tracker App in the DHIS2 in The Gambia.” In 2016, the Expanded Programme on Immunization of The Gambia received a small grant from the BLN to pilot an Electronic Immunization Registry (EIR) with the main objective of strengthening the data management capacity at central and regional levels in the country.
