Electronic immunization registries in low- and middle-income countries
May 27, 2021
The “Electronic immunization registries in low- and middle-income countries” report builds on lessons from previous experience with electronic immunization registries (EIRs) and other primary health care registries in low- and middle-income country (LMIC) contexts to provide recommendations on system design. In addition, the report summarizes how registries can affect service delivery and outcomes. Specifically, the three objectives of this report are to:
Identify where EIRs have been implemented in LMICs
Summarize how and why EIRs can add value for vaccination programs
Provide recommendations on the functional and nonfunctional requirements for EIR system design.
The report provides recommendations to stakeholders on whether to introduce an EIR and how to design requirements for such systems. Read the full report here.
