Join us for a webinar: Five proven strategies to improve immunization data use (Findings from the Immunization Data: Evidence for Action Review)
Date: Thursday, December 5, 2019 3:00 pm
Europe Time (Paris, GMT+01:00)
The use of high-quality data is widely understood in the global health community to be a cornerstone of well-functioning health systems. However, despite continuous growth in the amount of health data available, the actual use of data in immunization program decision-making remains a challenge. Part of the challenge has been a limited understanding of what tools and approaches actually are effective in increasing the use of immunization data to support improvements in vaccine delivery and access. The Immunization Data: Evidence for Action (IDEA) Review was undertaken to identify the existing evidence on what works to improve the use of immunization data, and to synthesize that evidence into actionable steps that implementers, policymakers and funders can take to design better data use interventions.
During this webinar, the presenters from PATH will share the methodology used to identify and review 549 pieces of evidence and five proven strategies to improve data use that were uncovered. They also will discuss the evidence gap map that was developed and how the global immunization community can work together to increase the quality of evidence available on best practices for data use to help further the work started by the IDEA team.
