  • Focus Project
Goal
  • To assess the effectiveness, affordability, and sustainability of eIR and eLMIS in low- and middle-income countries.
Scope
MMGH, in partnership with Bocconi University and in-country research institutions conducted an evaluation of eLMIS and eIR in four low- and middle-income countries: Guinea, Honduras, Rwanda and Tanzania. eIR are computerized, population-based systems that contain individual-level information on vaccine doses received. eLMIS are electronic systems used to aggregate, analyse and display data from all levels of the immunization logistics system. MMGH supported the evaluation teams in each country to adapt the generic protocol, tailor the data collection forms, and collect primary and secondary data from all health service levels. This data was then analysed to generate evidence on the effectiveness, affordability and sustainability of the electronic systems.
Result

Outcomes of the evaluation were used to inform technical and policy decisions and investments for the introduction, implementation and scaling-up of these systems.
