mHealth for Better Routine Immunization Data in Honduras

  • This Bass Connections project builds on a previous team’s comparative analysis of routine immunization programs in Ghana and Honduras. In response to findings, the 2017-2018 team will focus on creating an mHealth (mobile health) system for better routine immunization data in Honduras.

    The project’s objectives are to:

    1. Conduct a structured needs assessment to inform an mHealth system for capturing and managing vaccination data in Roatan, Honduras
    2. Evaluate technology options that are appropriate for the Honduran context and meet the needs identified in the assessment
    3. Develop and implement the mHealth system with help from local partners, Clinica Esperanza and Offices of the Secretariat of Health in Roatan.
