Use of Mobile Phone for Improving Low Immunization Coverage among Children Living in Rural Hard-to-reach Areas and Urban Streets of Bangladesh

Description
  • Project Lead(s): Jasim Uddin

    In Bangladesh, immunization coverage among children living in rural hard-to-reach districts and urban streets remains low (42%-60%). Our research will produce a sustainable mechanism to use mobile phones to improve immunization coverage among children living in those areas. The research will provide an effective tool to register every birth electronically, and get locations to make sure that every undeserved child is vaccinated.
