eHealth Africa works with state primary healthcare development agencies to ensure that vaccines and dry goods are delivered safely and in a timely manner to health facilities. eHA plans, schedules and routes deliveries using the LoMIS Deliver application and shares with health delivery officers, to enable them to pick the right quantity of vaccines and dry goods from state cold stores to health facilities equipped with cold chain equipment.

At the health facility, the health delivery officer counts available stock of vaccines in the cold chain. Using the LoMIS application on his tablet, he ensures the right quantity of vaccines is delivered and gets a sign off from the health facility. After completion of delivery, the health delivery officer returns remaining stock and waste if any to the state cold store (Reverse Logistics).
