    Dear colleagues,

    Below please find an invite to a presentation and Q&A webinar about the Immunization Delivery Cost Catalogue (IDCC). Realistic and reliable immunization delivery cost evidence that is available at the right time and in the right format can help countries better advocate, plan, budget, and make programmatic decisions. The IDCC provides this data in an easily accessible, searchable web tool and downloadable Excel file. Over 400 immunization delivery unit cost estimates are included, all standardized to 2016 USD for easy referencing and use. The IDCC and companion products are available on the Immunization Economics platform (immunizationeconomics.org/ICAN).

    Hope you will join us on October 30, 2018 at 9:00am EST/1:00pm GMT for the discussion. Registration info is below.

    Background
    Under the UN initiative for Universal Healthcare Coverage, a healthcare system can serve at its best only with access to right medicines and health products. As per WHO access to right medicines can be best ensured by proper selection and use of medicines, affordable prices for quality medicines and products, sustainable financing and reliable health system. Pharmaceuticals (medicinal products, vaccines, contraceptives, diagnostics, and medical supplies) constitute second highest item of expenditure after the manpower in any given health facility/hospital. Irrational use of medicines is prevalent at all levels of health care leading to wastage of scarce resources as well as reduced medication safety in patients. Emergence of antimicrobial resistance continues to pose a global problem in handling the management of infections. Counterfeit and substandard medicines also create an impediment in access to quality medicines. Medication and pharmaceutical management in hospitals can be one of the most cost-effective measures for appropriate use of scarce health care resources. Medication safety in patients can be best ensured if rational and appropriate uses of medicines are practiced. Medication management through a functional Drug and Therapeutics Committee (DTC) which is also referred to as Pharmacy & Therapeutics Committee (PTC) can provide an effective structure and tool to bring together all the relevant people to work jointly for promoting more efficient and rational use of medicines. For accreditation from National Accreditation Board for Hospitals and Healthcare (NABH) in India and by many accreditation boards in other countries, requirement of a functional DTC/PTC is mandatory.

    Objectives
    The program will provide the participants with the tools and techniques for Medication and Quality management in healthcare institutions. They will be exposed to real life situation to help them to find the practical solutions and implement them in their own settings.

    The specific objectives of the program are:
    • To enable participants, understand and comprehend the concepts and principles of pharmaceutical management and interventions to promote rational use of medicines in hospitals
    • To facilitate appreciation and significance of Drug and Therapeutics Committees (DTCs) towards pharmaceutical management in hospitals with its goals, role, structure, and functions.
    • To enable participants, understand issues related to quality & safety of medicines and supply chain management
    • To understand antimicrobial resistance, approaches for containment and antibiotic policy
    • To expose the participants to practical approaches in developing effective strategies for change.

    Course Content
    The course consists of discussion on following areas:
    • Problem of irrational use of medicines
    • Evidence based medicine
    • Tools, interventions and strategies to improve medicines use
    • Concepts of Formulary and Standard Treatment Guidelines, and Drugs & Therapeutics Committees, its
    structure, and functions
    • Formulary management
    • Quality assurance of medicines
    • Basic cost-effectiveness evaluation
    • Field visit to hospital and hands on practice for Pharmaceutical management in Hospital

    • Medication errors
    • Prescription audit
    • Monitoring medicines use
    • Antimicrobial resistance approaches for containment and antibiotic policy
    • Pharmaceutical supply system including procurement and distribution

Accredited hospitals having DTCs/PTCs may empower members to expand their knowledge and hospitals in process of constituting DTCs/PTCs can also nominate their professionals.

    Webinar: How-to and Q&A - Immunization Delivery Cost Catalogue (IDCC)

    The Immunization Delivery Cost Catalogue (IDCC - https://immunizationeconomics.org/ican-idcc ) is the most comprehensive, current, and standardized global evidence on the cost of delivering vaccines in low- and middle-income countries.

The Immunization Delivery Cost Catalogue (IDCC - https://immunizationeconomics.org/ican-idcc ) is the most comprehensive, current, and standardized global evidence on the cost of delivering vaccines in low- and middle-income countries. It features over 400 unit costs that can be used by national and international immunization stakeholders for budgeting, planning and policy-making purposes.

    Want to learn more about how to use the IDCC and have an opportunity to ask your questions? Join us for a webinar on Tuesday, October 30 at 9am EST. Email ICAN@ThinkWell.global for more information and to register. You can also submit any questions you might have about the IDCC, so they can be taken into consideration as we develop the webinar content.

    The IDCC was developed under the Immunization Costing Action Network (ICAN) project. Led by ThinkWell and John Snow, Inc. (JSI), the ICAN is a project focused on increasing the visibility, availability, understanding, and use of data on the cost of delivering vaccines. ICAN aims to build country capacity around the generation and use of cost evidence for sustainable and predictable financing for immunization.

    Hope to "see" you there!
