At Shifo, we have reliable, scalable and cost-saving health data solution

We work with partners to deliver evidence-based results for more accountable and more sustainable health system development.

Complete and accurate Programmatic
and Supply Chain Data

*Based on the external evaluation for EPI in The Gambia, Uganda and Afghanistan


Data visibility regardless
of infrastructure limitations

*Based on external evaluation of SPT
solution in The Gambia

Count the uncounted

Shifo is the only organisation able to scale the collection and use of health data at a national level, establishing sustainable data culture to solve healthcare's greatest challenges. Due to Shifo’s unique solutions, we can address specific infrastructure needs of low and middle-income countries while delivering high-quality patient and supply-chain data.


Eliminate the need to physically travel to health centers for data verification


Shifo’s solutions can be sustained by Governments without external donor support. For instance, in Zambia, current health information system costs can be reduced from USD 3.5M to USD 500.000 per year. 


Because SPT is modelled after and replace existing paper forms, health workers can easily adopt the solution in all health facilities. For instance, we are already operating in the national level of EPI program of The Gambia.


Generate high quality electronic data and allow quick access to this data from anywhere improving drastically data use and informed decision making at all levels.

"Their support  has  not  limited  to  introducing  their  new  technology,  but  they  also  supported  the overall data collected structure, strengthening the culture of data use to support key decision makers"

The Gambia Ministry of Health

"To our knowledge, there is no organization, except Shifo, who managed to replace the existing HMIS System at scale in the Africa continent."

“Innovative approaches like MyChild can help us provide every child with a digital health record, even in remote areas without electricity or internet. This is a crucial step towards protecting every child against vaccine-preventable diseases.”

Dutch Ministry for Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation
Sigrid Kaag, Dutch Minister

"We are proud to be supporting Shifo in The Gambia. This type of innovative solution is exactly what is needed in low-resource settings to reach every last child with life-saving vaccines and will hopefully enable the Gambian government to further strengthen their immunisation activities."

"The MyChild Solution will facilitate access to preventive child health services and provide high quality, relevant information regardless of infrastructural limitations. The organisation has given its unflinching commitment to work with Shifo on the programme as well as the onward scaling up of the project nationally."

The Swedish Postcode Foundation
Marie Dahllöf, Secretary General

"We have been working with Shifo for a while and like their approach to alter their methods to ensure their programmes are sustainable and bring real time value to improve the quality of care to current and next generations. We support Shifo in achieving its vision of no child mortality or suffering from preventable diseases in Gambia and we look forward to more valuable learning and outcomes from the project."

Anne Holm Rannaleet, Executive Director

“It’s only by strengthening health systems and making sure we act based on the data at a facility and district level that we can know exactly which facilities are under performing and where the gaps are. As a sustainable and cost effective innovation, not only does MyChild provide a solid base for registering all children at birth and ensuring they are immunised on a timely basis, but it also allows for systemic change and continuous quality improvement in the health sector.”

Jochnick Foundation
Kajsa Åberg, CEO

“We know that Shifo cares about the end result - that the existing health system should sustain the gains. That's why we are proud to join the consortium and ensure we can integrate 100% of all operational processes into existing health system structure.”

You're in good company

What we do goes beyond technology. We build long and strong relationships with Ministries of Health, Funding partners, NGOs, Universities and the Private Sector.

We improve processes and implement innovative financing mechanisms. More importantly, we believe in the transforming power of capacity building at all levels of the health system to deliver a long-lasting impact on health systems.
