:: Successful pilot launch of Vaccine Adverse Events Management System (VAEIMS) in Sri Lanka
In 2013, IVI built the infrastructure for a WHO-conceptualized project, the Vaccine Adverse Events Information Management System (VAEIMS), to efficiently and effectively transfer Adverse Events Following Immunization (AEFI) data from periphery health care locals to a central database. The software, which will facilitate the transfer of data for public health action, was successfully adapted in Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka served as the first launching site to test the beta-version of the software. To learn more please visit: http://www.who.int/vaccine_safety/news/GVSI_Bulletin_8th.pdf?ua=1
