Hi Chioma Omolaye curious to hear a bit more about how you'd approach the next stage of this project and what got you interested in the immunization space originally?

Photo of Chioma Omolaye

Hi Ashely. Thanks for your interest.
The next stage is pretty simple and straight forward. We will visit the Health service commission where most Individual health data reside. We will be collating for a specific location in Lagos. The commission is one of those bodies that oversees all government health institutions. Also, we have started collating essential and non-essential immunization calendar from Birth to Old age. We will start with the 0-3yrs.
Personal Data include: Biography and demographics info, immunizations received till date. . As collation is taking place, software design will commence almost immediately. It will be designed in such a way that once data is uploaded, there will be an alert that spells out deficiencies if there are any. We will also collate information on Births within the period. Once there is a birth name and no immunization name, there will be a big alarm. This will also help us see gaps with Babies and precise locations at Risk

On Interest: Nigerians and my experience as a Mother attracted me to the immunization space. We believe that the days of Ignorance have passed and we as a nation and continent need to scale up our data,system digitally and tap from all the benefits of meticulously harnessing the power of data. Its 360 and with it's user based/user specific approach, It's a solution that alerts and benefits everyone.
