Solution

Using a mobile device and a durable smartcard, CODA replaces paper-based records to ensure beneficiary information can be recorded, tracked and monitored at an individual-level. The goal is to empower users to provide better assistance to beneficiaries and to enable stakeholders to make informed decisions through real- time data. The service offered is composed of both operational services and the digital product, to ensure that beneficiaries receive the right assistance at the right time.

Target Beneficiaries

Field workers supporting beneficiaries with malnutrition treatment programmes - mothers and children suffering from malnutrition. End-users who become actors in programmes which adopt CODA as part of their continuing operations can benefit from: • Improved targeting • Enhanced programming • Reduction in data entry errors and time spent per beneficiary • Expanded service coverage (offline functionality) • Mobile application adaptive functionalities • Intelligent automated decision support

Mission and Vision

CODA combines the value propositions of end-user decision support with the provision of analytics for individual beneficiary and program management over time. Additionally, CODA autogenerates aggregated data offline that can be viewed on handheld/ mobile devices on enrolment and treatment outcomes as well as additional beneficiary level demographic data for effective community outreach and defaulter/absentee tracing.
