An eHeatlh Initiative: Immunization Registry

Health facility workers using EIRS in conjunction with the conventional paper-based registration system in one of the health facility in Palpa district.

National Immunization Programme (NIP) currently relies on aggregated data on immunization to monitor the programme performance from sub-district, district to national level. From the beginning of the fiscal year (2015/2016), two districts “Palpa” and “Kanchanpur” have started electronic immunization registration system (EIRS) to register individual child level data and it’s vaccination detail. The system provides vaccination status by ethnicity, by geographical area for improved monitoring. Further, sms reminders can be sent from the system to track defaulters.
