Conducting a Situational Analysis and Engaging Stakeholders on Home-based Record Availability and Use
Research has found that home-based records are often underutilized or insufficiently used by HWs and caregivers and therefore do not always fulfill their intended purpose as a tracking and reporting tool.
As more vaccines are being incorporated into national EPIs (Expanded Programmes on Immunization) with multiple antigens being given at each contact, this record of which particular antigens an individual has received is increasingly important—both for personal record-keeping as well as for cross-checking during surveys and other monitoring or evaluation visits (notably given potential challenges with parental recall).
