  • The household numbering is done at the start of the implementation of CHIS. Community volunteers are mobilized with the help of the woreda administration and kebele council to conduct house to house registration and numbering. The villages within the kebele i.e. the health post’s catchment area is numbered serially like 01, 02, 03 and so on. Within each villages the households are then numbered serially starting from the house of the community health volunteer. The HEWs maintain a household visit “clock” which is put on the wall over the door of the health post. This clock indicates which HEW visiting which village. For the household visits, the HEW use the household numbers to plan for 8-10 households to be visited in a day. Accordingly, they can carry the family folders of those households and also note the follow-up services required by the household by looking at the operational cards in the tickler file. At the house, the HEW can quickly glance through the information within the Family Folder and identify what services the family members require. Thus, a family-oriented approach is promoted and reducing missed opportunities.
  • CHIS is proving itself as a useful tool for a holistic approach to family-oriented health care. During the household registration, family’s demographic and environmental sanitation data. This helped to the service needs of the community. For example, in Shurmo, the HEWs identified that there were about 117 households that don’t have latrines; almost all households didn’t have bednets. These information are boldly displayed on the walls of the health posts and help the HEWs to plan their interventions.
  • The tickler file system is helping the HEWs to identify service defaulters and thereby improve continuity of care.
