Youngbae commented on PIC - Photos in Immunization Clinic

Our prototype version has a dedicated page for each visit the caregiver makes to the clinic with the child. The page will have the photo from the visit as well as all of the vaccines administered on that date. The page will also have the current date and a future date for the caregivers to return to the clinic for future rounds of vaccinations.
The front pages of the photo album will have information about immunizations, why they are important, and how we can take pre-emptive measure to prevent diseases from occurring in the future.

Thank you for your interest in our project and your kind words!

Hi Aayush, thank you for your interest and feedback on PIC!
Yes, we wanted to create a human experience for the mothers visiting the hospitals for immunization. We heard from our partners at Uganda, that Ugandan mothers see hospitals as "a place people go to die". We wanted to counter this idea by creating a warming environment for the mothers and children.
We are prototyping the PIC service with village health workers in mind. The village health workers will visit families and use the photo album to describe the immunizations and immunization process to the mothers to make it seem less threatening and so that the mothers can see the value of immunization. We are in the process of developing visual guides to help the mothers as well.
