How eMIS Tools are expanding in different districts of Bangladesh

Please click the tabs to see how beginning from 2015, the eMIS tools have gradually been expanded to different districts of Bangladesh. A snapshot is given below:

2015 – Implementation began in Tangail and Habiganj with population registration system, a mobile app for registering all individuals in the catchment area of the community health and family planning workers. Gradually, eMIS apps known as community and facility systems were introduced. Those are entirely based on the paper registers used by the field workforce of DGFP and DGHS.

2016 – Systems continued to roll-out for the community level health and family planning workers.

2018 – eMIS expanded to Natore, Jhenaidah, Madaripur, Maulvibazar, Lakshmipur, Noakhali and Jhalokathi. Launching ceremony for roll-out to 11 districts was held in the end of the year, which were: Cox’s Bazar, Rangpur, Gaibandha, Kurigram, Dinajpur, Thakurgaon, Nilphamari, Panchagarh, Lalmonirhat, Rajshahi and Cumilla. Initially, 2 upazilas each of the districts were selected. However, out of these 11, implementation began in Cox’s Bazar immediately. The rest were covered in the following year.

2019 – eMIS rolled out in districts of Rangpur, Gaibandha, Kurigram, Thakurgaon, Dinajpur, Nilphamari, Panchagarh, Lalmonirhat, Rajshahi, Feni, Chandpur, Brahmanbaria, Kushtia, Manikganj, Faridpur, Sylhet, and Sunamganj. Another 12 new districts are set to be added by December, which would bring all the districts of Chattogram, Sylhet, Rangpur and Rajshahi divisions under eMIS.

2020 onward – After meeting the MIS operational plan target of 4th Health, Population and Nutrition Sector Program (4th HPNSP), i.e., covering 15 districts under the Chattogram and Sylhet divisions, it would be possible to look forward and cover entire country at the end of current sector program or 2022.

Notes:

  1. The names of the districts appears in chronological order of implementation date, beginning with 2015.
  2. Under the eMIS, tools have been developed for users in the Directorate General of Family Planning (DGFP) and Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) under the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Government of Bangladesh. There are variations in the roll out of eMIS apps under these organizations.
  3. In the eMIS ecosystem, there are apps (or eRegisters) for Community Health and Family Planning working under the DGFP and DGHS in the rural areas, generically described as community systems. There are also tools known as facility systems which are used in the Union Health and Family Welfare Centers (UHFWC) managed by DGFP or Union Sub Centers/Rural Dispensary managed by DGHS. In some districts, community systems have been rolled out first, while in the others facility systems.
  4. It has not been possible to cover the whole districts at one go. In some districts all and in others, one or two upazilas were taken up initially. Additional upazilas are being added gradually.
  5. During pilot implementation and later, implementing partners of USAID supported field implementaion. Since June 2019, the DGFP is leading and managing the implementation in the districts.
