1. Introduction, Background and Context

For the implementation of the Insecticide-Treated Bed Net (ITN) campaign, in Liberia National Malaria Control Program (NMCP) has decided to digitalize the campaign using the Digit’s platform developed by the e-Governments foundation. CRS is a digitalization partner to the NMCP has the responsibility to secure and plan the adequate use of the DIGIT’s platform for the campaign to ensure digital data collection, reporting, transparency, and accountability for the distribution of the ITNs. As part of the digitalization framework, CRS and the NMCP intends to use a secured Quick Response (QR) code enabled coupon/net card as mechanism for accountability in the following fashion.

Ref #1:

Technical specifications below) and QR code would be scanned and it’s unique number would be associated a reference for each registered household by the DIGIT’s android mobile application.
  2. Upon any complete household registration, each household is designated a specific number of nets which is based on an algorithm (which is listed in 2.4 below) through the DIGIT’s platform and linked to the unique ID serial number scanned from the QR code on the coupon.
  3. Unique serial ID number scanned from the QR code, would be linked and stored with unique ID of households and its members + unique ID of device user performing the household, registration + number of nets designated to each household as defined by the algorithm + unique ID of user performing the distribution of the ITNs. This stored data would be available for recall and use for any further transaction within the Digits platform or generation of reports.
  4. Upon scanning the unique serial ID number from the QR code of the coupon physically identified through it security features, the DIGIT’s mobile app will recall the household information and present the number of ITNs to be issued to each household previous registered and assigned a coupon during the registration phase.
  5. In an event of damaged QR code on coupons the serial numbers on the coupons can be entered instead of scanning the QR code to perform action 1-4 above.
  6. Number of nets assigned/issued and list of designated households with ID’s are easily generated from the DIGIT’s platform in an excel format report.
