Abstract
The role that Information Communication Technologies (ICT) plays in improving the efficiency and effectiveness of healthcare delivery has been well established. However, the effectiveness on current immunization systems, its political, social, economic and technology challenges have not been investigated fully. This paper investigates the potential role of ICTs in enhancing and improved understanding of immunization health care problems. The paper presents a qualitative model, a causal loop diagram showing the key issues pertaining to the immunisation healthcare system effectiveness. The paper uses the model to present the status of the current immunisation system in Uganda and proposes a framework of how ICT can be used to enhance immunisation coverage.
