Easing District Health Information Reporting through Mobile Technology


In March 2013, Koboko district just like other districts in West Nile was introduced to a mobile technology initiative – mTrac. mTrac enables health workers report on disease surveillance and ACT stock data every week using their mobile phones. Three weeks after a thorough training on how to use the mTrac system, Koboko district recorded a 93% reporting rate – an achievement that had never happened with the paper based reporting system. During the fourth reporting week, the district made it 100% reporting rate, which it has maintained up to today.
