There is more than meets the eye

So here I am on my journey helping to vaccinate kids in Mozambique. Today the stop is in Matola, a little satellite city of Maputo (capital of Mozambique). We went on the 6th of July to train MOH officers on how to upload data  on a web-based monitoring and reporting platform that can upload data in an offline mode.  The idea is to shorten the time taken during data collection at the health centres (stocks, wastage/write offs, inventories, replenishment, consumption) and the time it becomes available for analysis and root causing.  This training was given to officers of the immunisation program of the MOH. These officers have also been previously trained on basics of stock management, frequency of replenishment and cold chain.
There is been a massive shift on the ways of working with the MOH with whom VillageReach works closely. The MOH – Immunisation program is now receiving a monthly logistics performance report addressing information of inmunisation programme KPIs and uses it to hold a  monthly review meeting to discuss about strategies on needed improvements…

  1. Hi Diana, I found your blog very interesting as the Health Clinics Save are working with in Kenya have the same monitoring issues collecting the data you mentioned (stocks, wastage/write offs, inventories, replenishment, consumption) .Would you be able to share with me the name of the web-based monitoring and reporting platform your team use? Great start ! best wishes, Jim

  2. Hi Diana, Great blog. I am working at Save in the Philippines and seeing the same issues. Good luck on making sustainable change. I will be following your blog:)
