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, Sunamganj and Cumilla. 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.
