Clinical decision making in the field is both difficult and inefficient.
Community health workers don't have a good way of knowing which vaccines to bring with them to immunization camps, making it difficult to make in-field decisions and get every child their required vaccines on time.
Many mothers don't understand the importance of vaccines and choose not to take their children to immunization clinics.
Mothers often forget about camps or do not realize the number of shots required for full immunization; as a result, many infants fall through the cracks.
Current data collection methods are outdated, cumbersome, and lack patient specificity.
NGOs are missing real-time, actionable immunization data, making it impossible to tell which babies are missing their vaccines or to judge the efficacy of intervention methods.
To track each child’s immunization to the last mile so that 1.5 million children do not continue to die from vaccine-preventable disease every year.

Khushi Baby is currently working with Seva Mandir, a non-profit community service organization based in Udaipur, Rajasthan, India. Together, we are conducting a randomized control trial and hope to expand to other use cases in various regions in the future.
The Khushi Baby system is currently rolled out to 96 camps in northern India. The map shows a selection of some of our camps that immunize the largest number of children. For a full list of camps and more details, please visit the Seva Mandir website.
In the next year we hope to track 2000 to 4000 children across 100 different villages, but we don't want to stop there. It's important for us to continue to validate and iterate on our system so that we can fulfill our vision: that every child receive the vaccines they need on time. But we need your help to grow. Khushi Baby is currently powered by volunteers, but we are always looking for ways to meet our operational costs and sustainably support our team. If you want to join us in making Khushi Baby the next symbol for closing the immunization gap, we would love your support. Here's how you can help:
With one phone a health worker can reach as many as 500 children per month. It is one of the most invaluable donations you could make and is a gift that keeps on giving for years to come.
30 dollars provides all the necklaces one vaccination camp will need on average for a given month. Help us track 30 more children and make sure they get the vaccines they deserve.
By donating just ten pendants you can make sure ten childrens immunization data becomes digitized and trackable, giving each of them a better chance at becoming fully immunized.
