Conducting Advanced COVID-19 Vaccine Data Analytics

JSI is implementing the five-year Digital Health Activity/DHA/ in Ethiopia, which is funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). The purpose of this Activity is to support the Government of Ethiopia (GOE) to improve the quality of health services and create a sustainable healthcare system through the use of data for decision-making, as well as to provide similar services to other countries in Africa or to respond to a crisis in Ethiopia (as needed). The primary objectives of the Activity are to 1) support information technology systems and data repositories at all levels; 2) build a culture of data use, and 3) improve the capacity and governance of MOH health information systems management.


JSI is supporting the Ethiopian MoH to deploy a range of integrated digital platforms for early warning and preparedness, emergency response, vaccine supply chain, and vaccinated beneficiary tracking and reporting. The tracking of vaccines from pre-shipment (before entry to Ethiopia) to Woredas (districts) is managed through a suite of eLMIS systems. And as an Aggregate Program Data Management Tool, DHIS 2 is deployed in woredas nationally. The overall purpose of having these tools and the data they generate is to make sure the overall program is properly monitored and interventions are designed as needed.


JSI, through the USAID Digital Health Activity (DHA), seeks to identify a vendor to conduct a high-level analysis of relevant COVID-19 data to inform decision-making around vaccine hesitancy, targeting hesitancy, and inform effective campaigns.
