We propose a ‘Health Passbook’ for each mother to keep the health and immunization record of her child. Here, in this health passbook we visualize that the entire medical history of an individual (birth onwards in chronological order) is brought together at one place.
The Health Passbook will comprise of multiple sections such as:
• Mother’s information, (currently we have done this part) - Change of address is a major concern in INDIA; we have addressed that by additional space.
• Antenatal care information,
• Postnatal care information,
• Child health and immunizations (currently we have done this part).
Currently we have focused only on the vaccination only card recording mother and child details and immunizations. We wish to call it the ‘Health Passbook’ to drive home the point that it is as important as the bank passbook and therefore valuable. There is an advantage in visualizing this as a book rather than a standalone immunization card. This ‘Health Passbook’ could be standardized across the world. The languages and appearance may differ across countries due to the contextual data.
However, a cover page constant in its layout can be used to promote significance of immunization through a worldwide campaign.
Here’s a brief look at rationale behind cover design elements:
