Vaccinators’ knowledge and expertise are essential for the appropriate delivery of childhood immunization programs.
Conventional methods for training and capacity building require a lot of human and material resources and have a variable impact on learning outcomes.
An alternative is required to provide continuous learning support to vaccinators to refresh their existing knowledge.
Leveraging the wide availability of mobile technology, IRD has developed a game-based application to provide an engaging, flexible, and interesting learning experience.
This aimed to boost productivity, improve performance and enhance knowledge of >3000 vaccinators deployed across Sindh.
Knowledge enhancement among vaccinators will be assessed by conducting baseline and end-line surveys.
Gamification application – EPI Rehnuma has been developed and launched across 30 districts of Sindh.
The application incorporates six training modules that contain 27 videos.
By the end of the project, IRD will be able to share the impact of gamified application in increasing vaccinators’ knowledge.
