Mobile applications (apps) can improve health outcomes. In this study, we have described an app developed for documenting the history of vaccination among Syrian children in one of the largest refugees’ camps in the Middle East region. This app includes health education information and automated reminders for parents, using a visual tool for parents with low literacy level. We have emphasized on the usability and technical concerns and have described the interdependency of technical and human considerations for such health app solution in a marginalized context.
