This project aims to develop an Android application for healthcare workers in Kenya to capture birth information and elements of essential newborn care, such as immunization. The underlying technology is an open-source tool-kit based on self-sovereign identity (SSI) principles and provided through our participation in the Evernym Accelerator. The mobile application to be developed will act as the client-side application and will accept birth details and health-related information as input. After verifying data for correctness and authenticity, a verifiable credential will be issued to the mother or guardian creating, in SSI format, the first step in the real-world birth registration process and capturing certain elements of essential newborn care.
Objectives Your application will include/describe
- User interface
- Data capture (may include iris images as biometric identifiers)
- Processing of data
- List item
- Secure transmission of data to and from a web server and other mobile devices
- Data storage and maintenance
Evaluation: At the end of the summer you will have a complete project application that can perform birth registration and newborn health data tracking
Students working on this project will also have access to the development support resources within the Evernym accelerator.
