BLN Webinar: Challenges in Ascertaining Proof of Vaccination in Routine Childhood Immunization in Burkina Faso
Applications, Hardware, Products, Tools
The BID Learning Network invites you to watch a webinar presentation called “Challenges in Ascertaining Proof of Vaccination in Routine Childhood Immunization in Burkina Faso.” In countries taking a fast pace to introduce new vaccines, primary vaccination recording tools, such as vaccination cards or home-based records and health facility-based records, may not be systematically updated or updated in a timely manner to include data recording fields for the new antigens. During this webinar the presenter shared key findings from a six week cross-sectional survey that was conducted in 30 health facilities across ten health districts in Burkina Faso between 2016 and 2017.

BID Initiative Generic Tools
Packaging, Products, Tools
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.

BID Initiative Briefs: Recommendations and Lessons Learned | Software Development Cycle
Immunization Registry, Products, Software, Tools
Partnering with Tanzania and Zambia, the BID Initiative developed, tested, and rolled out interventions that address some of the most pressing routine immunization service delivery challenges, such as poor visibility into vaccine supplies and difficulty identifying children who default on immunization schedules. This brief about the software development cycle summarizes the BID Initiative’s approaches and interventions, and shares recommendations and lessons learned for others interested in improving immunization data quality and use.
