The HealthEnabled collaboration with Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, aims to strengthen and complement the work of national health systems to ensure continuous data strengthening and improvements in immunisation coverage and equity. The project assessed the current use of digital health systems to support Gavi’s Data Strategy and M&E targets with focused engagement on prioritized technologies and countries. The project began in September 2019 and continues until December 2022.

HealthEnabled is focused on two workstreams resulting in a rich library of publications, reports, resource guides, and research designs. The first workstream ensured that digital strategies and platforms are well understood, documented, and aligned with priority immunisation outcomes. Assessments of the state of evidence, experiences and lessons from immunisation programming were conducted for geospatial data and technologies, social listening tools for demand generation, RapidPro for immunisation campaigns and DHIS2 for immunisation data collection, management and use. Two ongoing research projects were also developed in the first phase of the project for Zindagi Mehfooz, an electronic immunisation registry in Pakistan and Mapping for Health, the application of geospatial data and technologies for immunisation planning initiatives in the Democratic Republic of Congo. These studies are on-going and are scheduled for completion in 2022.
The second workstream focused on understanding country experiences using digital health tools to strengthen immunisation strategies with rapid assessments in Papua New Guinea, Mali, and Nigeria. HealthEnabled also supported Gavi in a prioritization exercise for future investments in digital health information.
HealthEnabled’s support to Gavi’s digital health and data strategy involved engagement and partnership with a large team of international agencies, governments, academic partners, implementers and donors.
The collaboration resulted in a broad range of resources and publications, including reviews of prioritized technology applications and strategies for immunisation data strengthening like GIS and Social Listening, on-going impact evaluation studies, and analyses of country digital health experiences to inform recommendations for national and global immunisation strategies.
The collaboration has demonstrated the powerful role that digital technologies play in improving immunisation service delivery and health outcomes when built on evidence, experience and well-established partnerships between funders, implementers and end-users.
