Five proven strategies to improve immunization data use (Findings from the Immunization Data : Evidence for Action Review)

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 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.

The Moth, the internationally-acclaimed organization dedicated to the art and craft of personal stories told live, is bringing two storytelling workshops to Nairobi, Kenya, in February 2020, in partnership with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

Through its Global Community Program, The Moth conducts workshops with individuals around the world, elevating stories that highlight world issues, dissolve stereotypes, and bridge social divides. Guided by Moth instructors, workshop participants shape selected life experiences into well-crafted stories, which may then be presented to peers and to the world at large.

These workshops will be offered free of charge, and will be made available to a total of 24 people (12 per workshop). Accommodation, travel, and meals will be provided for all workshop participants. The schedule will be as follows:

Workshop #1:

Monday, February 3rd, 9 AM - 5 PM
Tuesday, February 4th, 9 AM - 5 PM
Wednesday, February 5th, 9 AM - 4 PM
Workshop #2:

Saturday, February 8th, 9 AM - 5 PM
Sunday, February 9th, 9 AM - 5 PM
Monday, February 10th, 9 AM - 4 PM
Participants will arrive in Nairobi on the evening preceding the first day of the workshop, and will depart in the evening of the workshop's final day, or on the following day.

If you participate, you will:

be introduced to principles of personal narrative, developed by The Moth through its work with thousands of storytellers since its launch in 1997;
identify one personal story; and
receive one-on-one coaching to help craft your five-minute story.
Who should apply for this workshop: individuals who identify as people who help develop vaccines, help distribute or set up systems to deliver vaccines, people who have benefitted themselves from vaccines, or people who have family members or loved ones who have benefitted from vaccines. In addition, we strongly encourage advocates working in the areas of immunization to apply, but anyone is welcome to share a story about his/her work towards a world where we no longer fear infectious diseases.

Application Deadline: Applications will be accepted through Friday, November 8th, 6:00 PM EST and participants will be notified soon after that. If you have any questions, please contact us at globalcommunity@themoth.org.

European Immunization Week (EIW) promotes the core message that immunization is vital to prevent diseases and protect life. The slogan – Prevent. Protect. Immunize. – carries this message across the Region.

The next EIW will be celebrated on 20–26 April 2020.

The goal of EIW is to increase vaccination coverage by raising awareness of the importance of immunization among parents and caregivers, health care professionals, policy and decision-makers, and the media.

WHO/Europe leads and coordinates EIW, and all Member States in the WHO European Region are invited to take part. Regional and national partners, including the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) and the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), support implementation. EIW also benefits from high-level support at the national level, including ministers, ambassadors and other distinguished supporters.

Hello TechNet-21 members,

The UAV for Payload Delivery Working Group (UPDWG) invite you to attend a special, one and a half hour webinar, jointly hosted by UPDWG and TechNet-21 on integrating drones into immunization supply chains.

Webinar: Integrating Drones into Immunization Supply Chains

When: November 7, 2019 | 10-11:30 AM EST

Description:

Resilient, high-performing immunization supply chains (iSCs) are the basis for strong primary health care systems and the foundation for reaching global immunization coverage and equity targets. Yet efficient and reliable transportation for immunization products still remains a challenge in many low and middle-income countries. New technologies, such as drones, have the potential to revolutionize traditional modes of transportation but how do you know if these technologies are the right fit for your context?

In this webinar, UPDWG and TechNet-21 will explore when integrating drones (or UAVs) into existing iSCs is feasible and how you can operationalize drones in existing immunization programs. UPDWG Members from UNICEF and VillageReach will share their experiences from Vanuatu and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), in integrating drones transportation into the routine immunization supply chain. After the presentations, we will open the floor for a panel discussion with VillageReach DRC and former UNICEF Vanuatu staff.

Hosts:
Olivier Defawe - UPDWG
Daniel Brigden - TechNet-21, The Technical Network for Strengthening Immunization Services

Case Study Presenters:
Jaime Archundia - UAS Global Lead, UNICEF
Luciana Maxim - Sr. Manager, Research Evidence and Learning, VillageReach

Discussion Panelists:
Ridwan Gustiana - Health Specialist, Immunization UNICEF (formerly UNICEF Vanuatu)
Archimede Makaya - Equateur Provincial Coordinator, VillageReach DRC
Dieudonne Nsekela - Program Officer, New Technologies, VillageReach DRC
Christian Vazquez - Civil Engineer, Transportation Engineering (formerly UNICEF Vanuatu)
