Data4Action is a survey software developed by UNICEF to support implementation of different data collection projects in immunization and health field. It has been used to conduct data collection projects and health assessments such as health facility assessment for operational deployment planning, cold chain inventory assessment, monitoring of installation or maintenance of cold chain equipment, valuation of introducing new vaccines and the monitoring of supply, among others. The tool can also be used for big surveys like EPI coverage, EVM assessment and even for continuous monitoring of facility-based coverage, and vaccine stock levels, in addition to the functionality of cold chain.

One of the most important purposes for which this tool was developed is immunization. With factors such as an increase in vaccine costs, and the need for a higher storage capacity at all levels of the cold chain among others, a real need for a high standard of supply chain management capable of handling all situations including emergencies has risen.

By collaborating with governments, partners and communities, UNICEF aims at increasing demand for immunization through establishing more efficient cold chain and logistic systems in order to reach those unreached.

Given the high user-friendly nature of Data4Action tool which can be utilized both online and offline, it can be used to collect real-time data for any project in any topic or field besides immunization and the factors associated with it.
