Redesigning the immunization card for an Indian context

Immunizations are crucial to the well being of children between 0 to 5. Here is a 4 minute video to illustrate how a redesigned immunization card can tackle problems of comprehension (for parents and caregivers), reduce effort and time required to enter and retrieve information into the immunization card (for healthcare providers) and ensure accuracy of information (for surveyors and policy makers).

The video also explains how the card was repositioned from being just a medium of recording and exchanging health information to being a tool for  health workers to communicate the significance of immunization to parents and caregivers.

How have we made the existing immunization card more efficient in recording data, reminding parents of the date of next visit while educating them about significance of each immunization

Thank you for your ideas! I'm a pediatrician and internist who works in Nepal. I would suggest expanding/broadening this to include vital registration, and working to do this electronically. Throughout South Asia, the lack of vital registration remains a huge barrier to public health planning, public sector healthcare delivery, impact evaluation, and overall government accountability to key public goods like immunization. I wish you the best in your efforts.
