This project aims to develop an Android application for mothers and guardians of newborn babies in Kenya to receive and display birth information and elements of essential newborn care, such as immunization records. 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 designed and developed will act as a client-side application and will show birth details and health-related information for each child in an approachable, logical and user-friendly way. Once deployed as part of the NeoLinkID system, 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.
This application will provide the user interface through which mothers and guardians to display and manage the credentials they hold on behalf of their children.
Your application will include / describe:
- User interface
- Data display
- Processing of data
- List item
- Secure transmission of data to and from 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 display birth registration and newborn health data in a format that can be easily used by mothers and guardians of newborn babies.
