Themes emerging from stakeholder interviews included the easing of work by MyChild Solution for health workers and their supervisors, the suitability of MyChild Solution for the local context, the desire to scale-up the solution and include more service areas, the improved data quality the solution provides and additional issues for consideration moving forward.
