Vaccine tracking in West Africa with Swiss TPH

Using blockchain technology to help control the communication flow between local health providers and health and veterinary authorities

The project is funded by the European & developing countries clinical trials partnership—which has been joined by many institutions, healthcare participants & researchers—including the dHealth Foundation!

The aim of the project is, as the title of the project claims—to avert any possible deaths or serious conditions as a result of being exposed to rabies. This will be possible by precisely tracking each vaccine recipient as well as their health status and health changes.

dHealth—as a part of this very important project that is being deployed in Mali and Ivory Coast— is providing the blockchain infrastructure for the tracking of the rabies vaccines.

To be more precise—the dHealth blockchain will be used to store supply chain data of the vaccines in order to make the data accessible to all the partners in the project. Because of that, each project participant will know exactly where the vaccine doses are. The process that is performed to achieve the project’s goal is the following: the code of the individual doses is scanned and stored on the dHealth blockchain while the health workers performing this task—get rewarded for doing so. Moreover, a link to the off-chain health record of the patients will be stored as well.
