Vietnam’s National Immunization Information System (NIIS) is an ongoing story of a sustainably planned, government-run, nationwide electronic immunization registry (EIR) and vaccine tracking system that demonstrates a public-private partnership that both built the infrastructure and provided the service delivery. The NIIS is the product of a partnership between the Vietnam Ministry of Health and one of the country’s largest mobile network operators (MNOs), Viettel Business Solutions Corporation. Nationwide implementation of the NIIS entails essential engagement of private, fee-based immunization facilities that help to expand the reach of immunization services to the population.
Throughout the decade-long evolution of the EIR in Vietnam, PATH has played the role of a catalyst to accelerate coordination and bridge the gap between the two sectors. The IDEAL Vietnam project (Introducing Digital Immunization information systems–Exchange And Learning from Vietnam, funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation), in collaboration with the National Expanded Program on Immunization, has captured the essence of challenges and lessons learned from two different public-private partnerships. Brief summary can be found on our blog.
