iTrack identifies, collects, analyzes, maps and tracks immunization services data, then provides insights on children and urban population.
Our field workers capture data using iTrack mobile app, or web app and this data is linked with our AI system that detects and collects information from the health centers and households as captured on the app and map them using GPS system to locate coverage. And get the live-feed at the iTrack dashboard to be able to analyse the data to show insights on real-time.

YouthConnekt Uganda aims to implement iTrack application to collect immunization services data in urban areas at health centers and do a door-to-door visits to household level to map children tracking their status, by using our data collection tools in partnership with Ministry of Health who will introduce us to immunization centers.
Explain the innovation (2,500 characters)
By using iTrack to collect immunization data on children in urban centers through our developed mobile application, web application and AI system that will feed our dashboard to get live-feed of the data, generate it, use GPS coordinates to locate the homes and nearby health centers, and create insights according to areas, health centers, gender, immunization status of the children and their households. This will give the Ministry of Health a clear picture of the immunization service delivery and status on health center level as well as household level. The general public will be able to receive suitable services when the ministry sees the immunization data we have generated and analyzed, hence efficiently accelerated within highly urban population. More so, from the data insights iTrack generates after looking at loopholes and demand of supplies at immunization centers, we shall share with the designated supply chain of vaccines for improved discussions and decision making to benefit the population. Some of the insights will be looking at which health centers get more immunization customers, which vaccines are taken more often and for how long, etc. This will be shared with stakeholders to ensure proper decisions are taken that prevent wastage of vaccines.
After collecting the data from the health centers and households, the data is analyzed and insights shown on iTrack dashboard to make our partners understand which regions are covered and status of the children as far as immunization is concerned.
Which part(s) of the world does this innovation target?
YouthConnekt Uganda is under a big hub of YouthConnekt Africa that covers over 12 countries in 3 regions of the continent, therefore we shall look at Uganda as our starting point and be able to scale up to reach the rest like Kenya, Rwanda, Burundi, DR Congo, Congo Brazzaville, etc.
