A decision-support tool for stronger immunization programs

by Jonas for Health Information Systems Programme

The vaccine cold chain of a country -- the cold room and refrigerator equipment for storing vaccines at an appropriate temperature as they are distributed from national store to service delivery points -- is essential for the health of a population. This GSoC project aims at extending DHIS2 1. to evaluate a cold chain against the requirements of policies by the WHO, 2. to support making equipment decisions towards meeting them and 3. to report those decisions for an evidence-based case.
