In Tanzania, the United States Agency for International Development's (USAID) Maternal and Child Survival Program (MCSP) provides technical support to the Ministry of Health, Community Development, Gender, Elderly, and Children (MOHCDGEC) in 7 regions. After one year of piloting, the Immunization and Vaccine Development (IVD) Program of the MOHCDGEC commissioned this implementation research study to examine the effectiveness of a vaccine information management system (VIMS) in improving immunisation programme data quality. The specific study objectives are to: determine changes in data quality caused by VIMS use by comparing data quality indicators between VIMS pilot and non-pilot districts; explore the usability of the VIMS system by asking VIMS users to describe their experience using it; and examine the information management experiences of staff in non-VIMS districts.
