Abstract

While paper-based immunization registries are the prevalent form of documenting individual-level immunization service delivery in Africa, some countries are interested in transitioning to electronic immunization registries (EIRs) which have the potential to transform immunization data into useable information for decision making to optimize the performance of immunization programs. This report discusses opportunities and challenges in the adoption of EIRs in the African continent.
