Electronic vaccine intelligence network (eVIN) is an indigenously developed technological solution aimed at strengthening universal immunization by providing real-time information on vaccine stocks and flows.
Technology: to facilitate evidence-based decision-making.
Governance: to ensure efficient vaccine logistics management.
Human Resources: to empower state cold chain network by capacity building of government cold chain handlers;
eVIN helps to create a big data architecture that generates actionable analytics encouraging data-driven decision-making and consumption-based planning leading to cost savings.
It also provides the potential to be leveraged for any new vaccine.
At present, eVIN has reached 32 States and UTs (Andaman and Nicobar Islands, Chandigarh, Ladakh and Sikkim are remaining).
At present, 23,507 cold chain points across 22 States and 2 UTs routinely use eVIN Vaccine availability at all times has increased to 99% in most health centres.
Presently, many states are using the eVIN application with 100% adherence rate to track State-specific Covid-19 material supplies, ensure availability and raise alerts in case of shortage of 81 essential drugs and equipment.
