The Public and Environmental Health Sciences (PEHS) department at the Malawi University of Business and Applied Sciences (MUBAS), in collaboration with the Ministry of Health (MoH) and with funding from Nexleaf Analytics, recently conducted a training on Data Culture for Vaccine Remote Temperature Monitoring.

The training was targeted at EPI technicians and coordinators, focal persons in the health offices, and other stakeholders involved in vaccine management. It was also inspiring to see other facilitators from UNICEF and Lilongwe Technical College being part of the training.

Members of staff from other departments at MUBAS, such as Electrical Engineering and Mathematical Sciences, also provided expertise on the electrical elements used in temperature monitoring and data usage.

The training was well-received by the sixty-five participants, who expressed their appreciation for the opportunity to learn from experts in the field and to share their own experiences. They also highlighted the importance of data culture in improving vaccine remote temperature monitoring and ensuring the safety and efficacy of vaccines.

The training is a significant step towards strengthening vaccine management in Malawi. By equipping stakeholders with the knowledge and skills they need to use data effectively, the training will help to ensure that vaccines are always stored and transported at the correct temperature, thereby protecting children from preventable diseases.

The MoH and MUBAS are grateful to Nexleaf Analytics for funding this important training. They also acknowledge the contributions of the other facilitators who participated in the training.

The Public Health and Epidemiology Services (PEHS) department, in partnership with the Ministry of Health and with generous funding from Nexleaf Analytics, recently concluded a one-week intensive training program focused on Data Culture for Vaccine Remote Temperature Monitoring. The event brought together key stakeholders, experts, and practitioners to enhance the quality and reliability of vaccine storage and distribution across health facilities in Malawi.
