    The BID Learning Network (BLN) invites you to join a three-part webinar series about experiences and lessons learned on COVID-19 vaccine introduction from Africa. The first webinar in this series will feature lessons from Uganda, Zambia, Ghana, and Zimbabwe.

    This webinar will be of interest to data management specialists, EPI managers, health management information system (HMIS) specialists, ICT specialists and other health care specialists committed to improving data collection, quality and use across health systems.

    As the world grapples with the COVID-19 pandemic, many countries have begun vaccination campaigns and lessons have emerged on the challenges and ways to increase the success of the COVID-19 vaccine introduction.

    The vaccine introduction process requires that countries undergo a trajectory of self-assessment in relation to readiness, planning, coordination, management, vaccine safety and surveillance as stipulated by WHO guidelines. While some African countries have commenced the vaccination, others are still in the infancy stage of the process and as they prepare for the introduction of the COVID-19 vaccination, many lessons are being learned along the way. 

    Thus BID Learning Network (BLN) has planned a series of webinars and virtual panel discussions on the lessons learned from the introduction and subsequent roll -out of the COVID-19 vaccine in Africa. These interactions are intended to promote mutual learning and lesson sharing among the public, private and international health care practitioners for equitable distribution of the COVID-19 vaccines in African countries.

    EMPHNET is announcing the launch of the next webinar in its WEBi Series titled “Increasing Vaccine Demand and Uptake During the COVID-19 Vaccine Infodemic” The webinar will be held on Tuesday March 30, 2021 from 17:00 to 18:30, Jordan Local Time (UTC+3).

    The rapid spread of unverified information in the media triggers harm by building confusion and drowning out accurate health information. It can also cause a change in behavior, amplification of panic and the use of unproven and harmful treatments. Finally, it can lead to negative attitudes to vaccination, and consequently increase the level of vaccine hesitancy among vulnerable populations. This webinar, led by a panel of experts, tackles the infodemic witnessed during the COVID-19 pandemic and the application of effective and actionable approaches that communities, health institutions and authorities can take to promote the flow of accurate health information and that can mitigate the harm that rumors and misinformation can cause.

    The webinar session will focus on:

    • Exchanging knowledge, best practices, and lessons learned from global and regional infodemic trends and approaches.
    • Sharing a real country experience in tackling the COVID-19 infodemic.
    • Proposing actionable approaches and strategies to address the COVID-19 infodemic and misinformation.
    • Building resilience against misinformation in health systems and the public using available different resources.  

     
    Participating experts include: 

    • Dr. Saad Omer, Director of the Yale Institute for Global Health, and Professor of Medicine and Epidemiology at Yale University, Schools of Medicine and Public Health.
    • Dr. Niaz Muhammad, Director General Health Services, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan.
    • Mr. AbdelHalim AbdAllah, Crisis Communications Officer for the World Health Organization (WHO) Regional Office for Africa.

     
    The session will be facilitated by Prof. Hyam Nicola Bashour, Professor of Epidemiology and Community Health at Al Sham Private University and Public Health Expert and Mr. Atsuyoshi Ishizumi, Research Fellow at US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
