Innovation Labs

UNICEF Innovation Lab

Khartoum, Sudan |

UNICEF Sudan builds collaborative networks to facilitate new technologies and approaches to apply them in the field. By making local communities a part of the innovation process, UNICEF and partners identify, adapt, and advocate for government scale-up of solutions. A pilot project for the establishment of an Innovation Lab in Sudan was initiated in September 2012 in the University of Khartoum and the Sudan University of Science and Technology to provide an environment where students can interact with real world problems and stakeholders. UNICEF Sudan will support the establishment of permanent Innovation Lab.

Specific projects include:

– Rapid SMS for vaccination services (reminding mothers of the due dates for taking their infants for routine vaccination)

– Rapid SMS for school kit distribution (tracking the delivery of school kits from the warehouse to end user)

– Rapid SMS for increasing Birth Registration rate

(Primary focus: Vaccination services, school kit distribution, and birth registration)
