Kenya Safeguarding Child Health

Share

Kenya’s Ministry of Public Health, working with UNICEF, has twice a year conducted Malezi Bora (child health) campaigns to ensure childhood vaccination, along with provision of other vital health interventions. Since 2009, they have monitored the campaigns, from drug supplies to parental satisfaction, with Magpi (formerly EpiSurveyor).

Kenya also uses Magpi for many other purposes: tracking outbreaks, measuring vaccine coverage, and more.
