Real-time vaccine logistics data with eVIN to improve immunization coverage: the India experience

Let me know when the updated version of the UNDP Health Systems website is online:

Real-time vaccine logistics data with eVIN to improve immunization coverage

the India experience

In 2015, India launched eVIN, or the electronic Vaccine Intelligence Network, an easy to use smartphone and cloud-based technology that enables efficient management of vaccine supply chain using real-time data until the last-mile.

The project implemented by UNDP, in partnership with the Indian Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, with financial support of Gavi-the Vaccine Alliance, has successfully digitised vaccine stocks and storage temperatures across 10,500 vaccine cold chain points, in 12 states of India. At present, the roll-out is under way in 9 more states and union territories. The plan is to implement this electronic Logistic Management Information System (eLMIS) across all 27,000 vaccine storage points in all 36 states and union territories of India by 2019.
