About MyChild Card

MyChild Card is provided to children under 5 years of age who receive preventive health services including vaccination, nutrition, growth, development among others. With MyChild Card, electronic health record is created for every registered child thus making it possible to follow up on children individually.

Development of MyChid Card was informed by evidence and reality that in many areas, particularly rural settings, the infrastructure to support mobile or eHealth technology is weak or does not exist.

About MyChild Card


Every child is registered with Unique ID and receives vaccination, nutrition, growth and development monitoring and follow-up. The electronic medical history enables parents/guardians to receive sms reminders and individual follow-up of children, who missed their vaccination visit.

Every family receives information about their child's development and what they should do to provide needed care during chid's most vulnerable time - early childhood.

Every nurse can follow-up on children's vaccination, growth, nutrition, HIV prevention and other health services provided in the routine child visits. Reliable, child-based information which is automatically generated by MyChild system eliminates administration from nurses and midwifes (Child Register, Tally Sheets and HMIS Reports), thus they can focus more on every child's development and provide health education to the families.

Key stakeholders who work to close the gaps in specific health area have access to reliable and relevant data automatically generated by MyChild system.
