Project Example

Immunize India [Mobile app]

IAP-Immunizeindia is the world’s largest vaccination reminder service, and is available free of cost to parents anywhere in India. Parents opt-in to the service by sending a text message by SMS and registering. Text message reminders are then sent to the phone for 12 years, following the IAPCOI prescribed immunization schedule. Three reminders are sent, at 2 day intervals, for each vaccination that is due. An example of a reminder is – “Rekha is due for a vaccination this week, please do not forget to visit your doctor.”

The pilot for this program was concluded successfully in 2013, with thousands of parents enrolled from all over India.

The program is now a fully functional national service.
