Immunization-Tracking Bracelet for Resource-Poor Mothers

Lauren Braun of Alma Sana Inc. in the U.S. will develop and field test in Peru a simple, inexpensive immunization tracking bracelet that can be worn by babies and that uses numbers and symbols instead of written instructions to track the types and dates of vaccinations required. This bracelet will help remind resource-poor Peruvian mothers of the dates of their babies' childhood vaccination appointments, remind the healthcare workers which vaccines are needed, and increase the efficiency and rate of childhood vaccination.
