Effective Immunization through EPI Technical Smartphones

On the suggestions given by the pediatricians, the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P) health department has equipped technicians of the Expanded Program on Immunization (EPI) with android cellular devices to strengthen the program and help better data transfer from far off areas.

To launch these new smartphones for immunization, a ceremony was organized at the health secretariat. The android smartphones were handed over to the EPI technicians at this ceremony. There are total 1,557 EPI technicians, including 1,327 regulars and their supervisors. All of them will receive the androids to give data beside location and children’s information Centre.

The routine immunization is being dealt by the pediatricians by calling on the authorities in a similar way polio campaign is being tackled. Other than polio, there are various other detrimental diseases, which are causing too many deaths in the region. Keeping all these suggestions in mind, the health department has developed and implemented the strategy of filling the gaps to ensure lifesaving vaccinations for the children of the community. Health department of K-P has also planned to appoint more people for routine immunization, supply chains, field monitoring and giving mobility to vaccinators for greater outreach.

It is one of the most effective measures the health department of K-P has taken so far. With technology coming in the field of health in Pakistan, it is now anticipated that health system will readily improve in the province. In addition, other health sectors of the country will also adopt this new idea of child immunization.
