The Ministry of Health of Burkina Faso has shown its support and commitment to IeDA by pushing for the deployment of the REC in a third region. After the regions of Nord and Boucle du Mouhoun, the REC will be used by healthcare workers in the Sahel region, thanks to the financial support of the Global Fund Initiative.
Tdh will provide technical support to the Ministry of Health and the implementing department, la DSF (Direction de la Santé et de la Famille, Department of Health and Family Issues). It is another step in the process of increased ownership by the sanitary system in Burkina Faso, a step that will make IeDA sustainability a reality.
Great news: we launched a new version of the REC: REC 2.5. It is a massive leap forward in terms of performances and usability, making the REC a faster, easier-to-use application. We focused our efforts on the treatment, providing users with more information and enabling them to indicate precisely which medicine they prescribe to patients, increasing the quality of patient follow up and drug prescription monitoring.
More than ever the REC is a true digitalization of the IMCI protocol which enables healthcare workers to better diagnose and treat children. This will contribute to our goal of reducing child mortality and morbidity.
