The evolution of battery-less Solar Direct Drive (SDD)

This interactive workshop presents the complete picture of how remote vaccine refrigeration technology has evolved, from early solar+battery systems (which often failed) to “battery-free” solar direct drive (SDD) technology that is incredibly reliable. Learn about the new ways that solar direct drive now provides a wide variety of power to off-grid health facilities beyond just refrigeration, including cell phone charging, lighting and medical equipment and even AC power and freezing temperatures. And learn why new vaccine initiatives may require even more elaborate solutions than ever before. 

This course is available online via Zoom. Once you register for the training, you will receive login details in your confirmation email.

This webinar will be not recorded so please plan to attend it live.

Advocating at the subnational level during COVID-19

August 6, 2020

4:00-5:30 PM EAT | 9:00-10:30 AM EST

The COVID-19 pandemic is transforming the world around us—shifting priorities, repurposing resources, changing accountability practices, and accelerating policy development. In the absence of face-to-face interaction, the pandemic is also changing the way health advocates approach policymakers—increasingly through virtual means. Virtual engagements are often more difficult at the subnational level, excluding critical community and civil society voices in decision-making. 

As decision-making, accountability, and action is increasingly taking place subnationally, how must our 'traditional' approaches to advocating at the subnational level shift as a result of the pandemic? How can we facilitate and ensure community perspectives feed into national decision-making? How can we improve the capacity of sub-national level advocates for impactful engagement in the new normal?

We hope to explore these and more questions in the second conversation in PATH's virtual learning series: Health Advocacy in the New Normal. This series aims to catalyze conversations and exchange best practices among health advocates and policymakers by bringing together perspectives from across the African continent to reflect upon what is working and how we are evolving the practice of advocacy for impact in the health sector.

JSI, with Gavi support, is hosting a second webinar series to build the supply chain capacity of EPI program and supply chain managers, this time focusing on building responsive immunization supply chains. To be responsive, supply chains need to evolve and adapt to change, whether for a new vaccine introduction or to improve performance. By participating in the series, you will have the chance to consider how supply chain design affects performance, how to prepare for new vaccine introduction and how to manage your cold chain equipment inventory, learning from experts in the field and experiences of many countries around the world. Please find attached a description of the webinar series and the objectives for each webinar. Attendees who participate in all four webinars, either live or buy viewing the recorded webinar, will receive a certificate of participation.

The first webinar in the series is Part 1 of Immunization Supply Chain Design. It will be held on 25 August at 13:00 GMT. This webinar focuses on key supply chain design considerations. Part 2 of Immunization Supply Chain Design, which will follow in September deals specifically with immunization supply chain optimization and will feature Zambia's experience with the optimization process.

By the end of the webinar, participants will be able to:
1. Define system design, system re-design and optimization
2. Identify the various supply chain components that need to be considered when designing an in-country immunization supply chain
3. Identify specific design considerations related to each supply chain component.

To register for the first webinar, please go to this link.


We hope you will be able to attend and look forward to our on-going discussions on strengthening immunization supply chains.
