Describe what you intend to do and how you'll do it in one to two sentences (required 350 Characters)
Zuan Design Labs LLP aims to build an accurate National Immunization Health Database using GIS Technology to aid better beneficiary data collection by frontline workers in peri-urban & rural areas of India and aid data analysis and micro-planning by supervisors. Will shall collaborate with 'Immunization Technical Support Unit' for implementation.
Explain the innovation (2,500 characters)
Program JAYA is a digitally powered program that uses GIS Technology for better immunization data collection and analytics while collecting data on denominator/beneficiary and providing analytics helping increase the efficiency of ASHAs/mobilisers.
JAYA leverages the rapidly digitizing Indian landscape and is designed keeping in mind the low-tech familiarity and education levels of ASHAs(Accredited Social Health Activists). JAYA can be downloaded from the Android App store and can even be used on an entry-level smartphone. JAYA also helps by generating data on denominator (total number of beneficiaries of the immunization program) and tracks these beneficiaries to build an accurate national immunization health database. This database can be used by ASHAs, ANM(Auxiliary Nurse Midwifery) and other government bodies get real-time data & insights on lapsers (drop-outs and left-outs) that need urgent attention, helping in better micro planning and coverage.
JAYA brings every stakeholder (beneficiaries, supervisors, healthcare providers and facilities) in the immunization chain onto one singular platform. It helps in real time monitoring through customizable dashboards for every supervisor in the pyramid.
In India, mothers and children below the poverty line are administered vaccines by the government at no additional cost. Frontline workers/ASHAs need to get these beneficiaries to the vaccine session site. Since these mothers are very poor they do not own a mobile or devices that automatically remind them for vaccines, the frontline workers are their point of contact. Another reason for empowering frontline workers is that they bust the myths associated with vaccines and convince beneficiaries to get immunized. Sometimes multiple sessions of counselling are required before the mother finally allows the child to get vaccinated. Program JAYA has been designed building upon these common practices and empowering the frontline workers.

Who will work alongside your organization in the project idea? (1,000 characters)
Program JAYA shall plug into the existing legacy platforms of the Indian government like RCH (Reproductive Child Health)-portal and ANMOL (ANMonline) to share data and ensure best beneficiary tracking and complete immunization. Collaboration with ITSU (Immunization Technical Support Unit, India) will aid in the on-ground implementation and ASHA's (frontline mobiliser) training (especially in a few states of India).
How is your idea unique? (750 characters)
Program JAYA has been designed after a thorough research phase and continuous validation of various features, functions and usability from all stakeholders who shall be using Program JAYA. Special attention has been paid to weave-in the socio-cultural and infrastructure limitations of the areas of operation into the design of the digital platform. This has increased the local acceptance of the platform by the frontline workers.
There is an existing pattern of data collection which standardized across India. Program JAYA is built considering the existing system and its smooth integration. All frontline workers in the current scenario are trained prior to joining their duties. This helps to maintain standardisation in activities
