Describe what you intend to do and how you'll do it in one to two sentences (required 350 Characters)

will use AI to map out Immunization centers with refrigerators(custodian) ,Pair them to those with no refrigerators (recipient),link them to our partner transporters(To pick vaccines from the Depots to the recipient and vice-versa upon end of exercise)and produce health center Utilization data analysis and insights for improved decision making.

Explain the innovation (2,500 characters)

High-quality and timely immunization data are vital to inform decisions at local, national, and global levels. This includes decisions about how to better reach children, successfully introduce new vaccines, document impact, monitor and improve immunization system program performance, prioritize resources and activities, and engage in performance improvement. Unfortunately in developing countries due to lack of Tools to do proper Data Management,loopholes in making proper decision have remained persistent and in the end this has played a big part in vaccine wastage(estimated to be 50% by WHO). Dr.Anold from Muko Health center in Kampala Slum does not have a fridge to keep vaccines one day while on Radio he heard about chanjia and saved all the procedures on how register his clinic.The next day he followed the procedures and upon registering his facility,he was paired with Kyondo Clinic as where he will always pick immunization material and return the remainder after exercise.The two are also liked to the trained transporters(safe boda or uber boda). Every Thursday Dr.Anold uses chanjia to order for vaccines fro the custodian(kyoka clinic).Upon receiving order Kyoka prepares it and using chanjia searches for near by transporter who electronically signs for the package delivers it to Anold's health canter . upon receiving Anold or representative acknowledges receipt using chanjia and this is dedicated from kyoka's main stock from Ministry of health.On finishing the exercise Anold using the same chanjia checks for near transporter and the same way of accountability is done using chanjia. At the end of the Day Chanjia Analyses the data on how much vaccine was used ,which vaccine was taken by many etc and Analysis and Insights generated are sent to contact stakeholders( 1) doctors; who use the data to easily know which vaccines are supposed to be ordered for in bulk,which vaccines are still in stock and their expiry dates 2)District Health Officers and Inspectors they come to know which areas /parts do not carry out immunization as recommended ,Which health canters have a high turn up of care givers and Vicevasa, )for Proper planing and improving the immunization services at end of month. The same data is freely accessible from chanjia by the public in both audio ,Video or Text form who use it to hold government accountable for any loophole in vaccine distribution process.

Which part(s) of the world does this innovation target?

  • Eastern Africa
  • Western Africa

Geographic Focus

DRC -Bukavu,Kananga, south sudan-Juba Uganda Kampala,Mbarara(Katanga ,Katwe,Makidye KIfumbira,Byafula,Kisenyi,Rwebikona and Kiswahili slums Ghana- Accra South- Johannesburg Kenya- Nairobi

Stage of Innovation

  • Majority Adoption

Who will work alongside your organization in the project idea? (1,000 characters)

All the three partners will be part of the implementation (Community Dental and Reproductive Health,Women Smiles and Rap software solution). We have also intend to wok with IBM labs Nairobi and south Africa in the efforts to develop the version three of Chanjia and they will bring their great experience in Artificial Intelligence system to bring a robust chanjia version three . Gavi will introduce us to all the governments where she has presence,will give technical Guidance in development of next version of the system. Unicef ,Will also being on board their expertise and experience in Immunization which will help us in bench marking for the next version of chanjia.

How is your idea unique? (750 characters)

Chanjia has capacity to capture date,Analyse and produce Insights which are automatically shared with the stakeholders in our database and our social media .This only done by chanjia and this makes it the only platform where human knowledge and hand is only required at data entering.More so chanjia's insights are user friendly since she automatically converts each Insight set into audio,video and Text form and most important she produces them in various languages local Swahili and International English,French and Portuguese coming soon. It favors the end users without smart phone and Internet ;She has the other version of Dial on top of mobile application which gives all the information to the user as the Application version .

Thank you Dr. for adding me to your team.I have seen your innovation from the day go and fortunately i was involved as a stakeholder when you were gathering end user feed and as i said .
This is a great innovation but i dont know if you streamlines and took Ministry of Health's Advise to contract some of these organised motorcycle companies like safe boda rather than you contracting individual Ridders .
Secondly about the transporters what about you not limiting to one rider per health canter but rather create an environment where if am the donor T and i want to send vaccines and our transporter is busy ridding his customers .i should be able to get variety of ridders near me and i chose one .
lastly is it open source or its for paying for (does the customer use chanjai for free as it was during the pilot
Otherwise its a great innovation

Mr Agaba Thank you.Now this the right way to respond hahaha. During testing we are not to deal with individual motorcycle riders but rather organised groups which will offer service in this case we are in talks with safe-boda and city boda for this service. This platfprm is open source

Hey @shamim nabuuma
It is great to know that your project is in early pilot and you have a recognized context in Uganda.It would be really great if you could add some essential details to the idea above so as to strengthen the concept. Try and incorporate the answers to your concept before the idea phase deadline.
1) Who are your user and what are the unique insights you have on about their journey?
2) Please share more about how your idea works and how the app fits in the system?
3) How is this idea unique and adds value in comparison to other methods being used in Uganda today?
You could use this Caregiver Journey maps as reference to show your idea in detail here:
