    About this webinar

    With this webinar, we would like to share with you some of the new tools and resources WHO has developed to support countries in monitoring inequalities in immunization: 

    French, Portuguese and Spanish versions of the Inequality monitoring in immunization: a step-by-step manual, a detailed guide to monitoring inequalities in immunization.

    Updated versions of the Health Equity Assessment Toolkit (HEAT and HEAT Plus), a software application for assessing health inequalities, including in immunization.

     

    Background

    The WHO Immunization Agenda 2030: a global strategy to leave no one behind envisions a world where everyone, everywhere, at every age, fully benefits from vaccines for good health and wellbeing. The new Gavi five-year strategy (‘Gavi 5.0’) has the vision to ‘leave no one behind with immunization’ and increase equitable use of vaccines. This year’s World Immunization Week highlights that #VaccinesWork to bring us closer – including to a fairer, healthier world.

     

    Key messages

    Monitoring inequalities in immunization is essential to ensuring no one is left behind and achieving equity in immunization, including for COVID-19.Inequality monitoring in immunization should be an integral part of a country’s health information system.

    To support countries in building capacity for the uptake and improvement of health inequality monitoring, including in immunization, the WHO has developed several tools and resources, including a global status report, an in-depth equity report, a step-by-step manual and a software application. All materials are publicly available via the WHO Health Equity Monitor.

    This April 2021, WHO is launching FrenchPortuguese and Spanish versions of the Inequality monitoring in immunization: a step-by-step manual as well as new versions of the Health Equity Assessment Toolkit (HEAT and HEAT Plus) software.

    Going forward, WHO will continue to support countries in monitoring inequalities in immunization (e.g. through self-paced online courses and facilitated training workshops). WHO will also continue to generate global evidence on inequality in immunization, including in zero-dose children and gender barriers to immunization.

    Leveraging Data to Support LMICs Vaccine Prioritization

    Join Nethope, FCDO-funded COVIDaction and GPSDD to discuss vaccine allocation data challenges and solutions

    Join Nethope, FCDO-funded COVIDaction and GPSDD to discuss vaccine allocation data challenges and solutions

    Covid-19 vaccines are just beginning to reach low and middle income countries (LMICs), but before they start saving lives, governments and other actors must create national vaccine allocation strategies. Data is emerging as a key priority in creating equitable and impactful strategies – however, many LMICs lack the data and easy-to-use analytic tools to effectively design these plans.

    On Thursday 15th April, the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) and the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data (GPSDD) will be joining a NetHope-hosted call to discuss leveraging data to support low and middle income countries (LMICs) in their vaccine prioritization efforts.

    GPSDD and COVIDaction will present findings from a recent assessment on data gaps and needs in LMIC governments as it relates to Covid-19 vaccine allocation and prioritization. You will also learn about the Vaccine Data Co-Lab's open call for matchmaking funds, and opportunities to receive support. Please join to learn from other organizations’ innovative data approaches, and share your vaccine allocation data challenges with those seeking to help.

    High-quality data – that is accessible in easy-to-use formats – is at the foundation of equitable, transparent and efficient vaccine delivery, and feeds directly into micro-planning at the national, regional and local level. Ensuring equitable global vaccine distribution is one of the biggest challenges facing the world today.

    Why Attend:

    1. To hear data challenges in LMICs in relation to vaccine prioritization, allocation and rollout
    2. To learn about innovative data approaches to solving data gaps and supporting government decision makers
    3. To hear from the Vaccine Data Co-Lab about the fund and matchmaking opportunity
    4. To share vaccine data challenges your team has come across to inform the Vaccine Data Co-Lab
