AKIPRESS.COM - UNICEF handed over urgently needed computers to the Ministry of Health to strengthen Uzbekistan’s national immunization system and the healthcare system overall.
The 2,150 computers will bolster Uzbekistan’s ability to implement effective vaccine management, immunization and contribute to a functional health management information system that reaches primary health care facilities.
Supported by Gavi, the equipment worth $1.5 million in total will be distributed at immunization points and other health facilities across the country. The computers will contribute to effective vaccine and immunization information systems and the basis of the innovative electronic registry that the country will use for immunization and other technology-based elements of Uzbekistan’s strategy for fighting the COVID-19 pandemic and strengthening routine immunization.
This donation will contribute to the COVID-19 vaccine rollout as well as the upcoming Measles and Rubella immunization campaign scheduled for September 2022.
