Tittel

Globvac – Integrated Health Information Systems (HIS) for vaccination in developing countries

Vitenskapelig sammendrag

Improving immunisation coverage is seen as a cost efficient means for improving the health of populations. However, increasing focus is being directed at population where coverage is poor and to populations who are marginalized and therefor at risk. Indentifying these groups is not easy in an environment where health information systems are fragmented, and provide incomplete and pour data.The project is a cross-disciplinary international consortium for research and development on appropriate Health Information System (HIS) to support monitoring, evaluation, management and delivery of effective and equitable vaccination services in low and mid-income countries. Our aim is to use information to identify marginalised groups by strengthening information gathering processes.Research into the most appropriate use of free and open source software at community, health facilities and managerial levels to support the immunisation programme will be conducted, and published through the strenghtening of an international research network of master and PhD students working alongside ministries of health in Vietnam, India, Mozambique, Ethiopia, Malawi, Tanzania, Zanzibar and South Africa.A key element is to explore the most appropriate mechanism to achieve an integrated HIS while strengthening the vaccine programme HIS. An action research methodology is proposed, enabling in-country assessments, and cross-country comparions. There are four work packages; supporting the overall project management, consortium development, country specific programmes and software development initiatives. An important consideration is the fact that the consortium already has a proven track record of experience and existing networks in the countries mentioned, and will thus quickly be able to scale up initiatives in support of strengthening the HIS related to the immunisation program.
