GoI launched U-WIN to digitalize India’s Universal Immunization Program

Published on January 25, 2023
Current Context: In two districts from each State and Union Territory, the Government of India (GoI) has established U-WIN, a platform to digitize India's Universal Immunization Program (UIP) (UT).
GoI launched U-WIN to digitalize India’s Universal Immunization Program
  • The GoI started this initiative due to the Co-WIN platform's effectiveness, and it repeated it in creating this digital registration for routine vaccines.
  • Staff and healthcare workers have received training on all U-WIN modules, and all states and UTs have been informed about the U-WIN features and goals for the pilot in 65 districts.
  • The Co-WIN platform, launched in January 2021 in 65 districts and served as the "digital backbone" for India's COVID-19 immunization campaign, is a clone of the U-WIN platform.
  • All pregnant women will be registered and immunized via the U-WIN platform, which will also be utilized to provide birth dosages, monitor delivery outcomes, and register deliveries of new babies.
  • The platform will act as the sole repository of data for immunization services, including antigen-wise coverage reporting, vaccination status updates, and scheduling routine immunization (RI) sessions.
  • All pregnant women and babies will be digitally registered to offer personalized tracking for vaccinations, reminders for the next doses, and follow-up on dropouts. Pregnant women and children would receive a vaccination acknowledgment and immunization card linked to an Ayushman Bharat Health Account (ABHA) ID.
  • Healthcare professionals and program managers will produce real-time data on vaccination coverage and routine immunization sessions, allowing for better vaccine planning and distribution.
  • To track and immunize beneficiaries, all states and districts will have access to a single database.
  • U-WIN site users can look out for nearby immunization facilities and make appointments there.
  • The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoH&FW) first presented the UIP as an "Expanded Programme of Immunization" (EPI) in 1978. When it was expanded outside of urban areas in 1985, the program's name was changed to "Universal Immunization Program" (UIP).
