AFENET is conducting a training for the Immunization Data Quality Improvement Teams (DIT) for the Greater Kampala III region. The training which started on Wednesday 24 July 2019, will end on 26 July held at the Source of Nile Hotel, Jinja. The participating districts are: Mukono, Wakiso, and Central Division Kampala. The training is coordinated by Dr. Kevin Mugenyi - Epidemiologist (DIT Team lead). From 29 July to 1 August 2019, participants will be deployed to various health centers for mentorship and supervision of immunization data quality.
The DIT Strategy is a Government of Uganda MoH data quality improvement initiative being implemented in collaboration with EPI partners including CDC, WHO, UNICEF and Gavi. The strategy was developed by the MoH and Partners following a national data quality self-assessment (DQSA) that highlighted major gaps in the quality of EPI data at national and subnational levels, and has been implemented since November 2014.
