Innovative solutions to improve health campaign effectiveness

Past participant at an in-person WFP innovation bootcamp in Munich, Germany.


Due to various social, technological and economic barriers, nomadic communities in northern Kenya are a demographic that lacks seamless access to digital health solutions. InSupplyHealth and Health-E-Net are partnering to provide a solution for community health volunteers in need of digital tools, that accommodate low literacy levels and are able to operate without the need for smartphones and data networks.

Clinton Health Access Initiative — Kingdom of Eswatini

The quality of health campaign delivery varies dramatically across teams even when operational support and relative levels of investment are constant. One of the most powerful behavioural insights informed approaches for improving productivity and performance is that of “benchmarking.” The Kingdom of Eswatini is in the process of adopting and scaling a mass drug administration (MDA) campaign tracking application to monitor, track and evaluate school-based deworming campaigns. The idea is to use process and outcomes from MDA tracking application to populate real-time benchmarks for outreach teams’ performance.

Health Campaigns Digital Gateway

Complete, up-to-date and high-quality population data, required to deliver health campaigns efficiently and cost effectively, are not often readily available to decision makers. Decision makers face challenges in utilizing planning and microplanning tools, and analyzing data to produce evidence based campaign plans. The solution is to develop a digital gateway that will ensure planners across multiple ministry of health departments have easy access to the data they need. This solution provides standardized tools and approaches to apply the data for effective planning, and reduce the duplication of efforts at national and sub-national levels.


Mass campaigns consistently struggle to obtain good coverage due to lack of knowledge of the population denominator geospatial location, population movement, and presence at the household, as well as planning and management of field teams. Akros developed the Reveal Platform to employ geospatial technology to identify population denominator and distribution to be used for campaign planning, delivery and monitoring. Akros will work with Johns Hopkins University to develop and incorporate human movement models into the Reveal planning interface.
