To improve immunization coverage, stakeholders (and their trained data managers) need easy access to reliable, actionable data. Led by PATH in collaboration with the governments of Tanzania and Zambia, the BID Initiative believes that better data, plus better decisions, will lead to better health outcomes. The BID Initiative was designed to help health workers to access and use data and to reach more children with life-saving vaccines. By transforming data collection, data quality, and the use of that data to make decisions, BID worked to empower health workers and countries to improve immunization and overall health service delivery.
Solving critical delivery problems with data.
A flexible, holistic approach.
Since 2013, BID has been partnering with the governments of Tanzania and Zambia to address the most critical routine immunization service delivery problems through improved data collection, quality, and use. With country partners, the BID Initiative designed, tested, and rolled out a holistic suite of interventions that are flexible enough to apply to other countries and health areas.
