This is the presentation of a JSI and Sonder Design Collective webinar, the fifth and final one sharing their initial findings from the Vx Data Insights research in Kenya. This Human-Centered Design study is a joint effort between the two organizations and the Ministry of Health in Kenya, aimed at understanding the challenges around collecting and using data for decision-making in delivering immunization services. In this webinar, the team takes you through different ways in which facility-level staff is responding to time and staffing challenges by developing ad-hoc data collection tools and workarounds. Based on facility observations and interviews with healthcare workers, they share specific examples of tools and approaches used by facilities.
