A training workshop for the trainers of the framework team of the delegation of the health districts of the province of Hadjer Lamis opened on Thursday in Massakory. It is focused on the use and configuration of the management tool of the Expanded Programme on Immunization (EPI).

2- How to connect to the application via your phone?
3- How to choose the type of form according to the activity conducted?
