Dimapur, May 20 (EMN): Ministry of Health and Family Welfare is currently rolling out an innovative Electronic Vaccine Intelligence Network called (eVIN) in 13 states in India and across all 11 districts in Nagaland supported by United National Development Programme (UNDP).

eVIN aims to support the Government of India’s universal immunisation programme by providing real-time information on vaccine stocks and flows, and storage temperatures across all cold chain points. After the successful implementation of eVIN in June 2016 and training more than 250 government staff including vaccine store-keepers and cold chain handlers on mobile and web-based eVIN application and also by providing smart phones to all the 123 cold chain points, the State went live to view the status of vaccine on September 14, 2016.

The Nexleaf- TERI technicians training on May 18 and 19 temperature loggers were installed Walk in Cooler (WIC), Ice Line Refrigerator (ILR) and Deep Freezer (DF) in the State Vaccine Store. On May 20, the official inauguration to view ‘LIVE’ temperature of the WIC, ILR and DF in the State Vaccine Store was done by Dr. Megousielie Kire, Director of Health and Family Welfare, Government of Nagaland.
