Join JSI and Sonder Design Collective for a second in a series of mini 30-minute webinars sharing their initial findings from The Vaccine Data Discovery Research in Kenya. This Human-Centered Design study is a joint effort between the two organizations and the Ministry of Health in Kenya, aimed at understanding the challenges around collecting and using data for decision-making in delivering immunization services.

In this webinar, the team will take you through their learnings about immunization actors in the Kenyan health system. Through their system map and focusing on key actors, they will cover what decisions are made, what information they use to make these decisions and the key challenges they face along the way. For more information about the work, you can download the initial Kenya findings report.

Health systems in low- and middle-income countries are facing the urgent pressure of the COVID-19 pandemic. Health supply chain workers are essential - ensuring continuity of care as well as the availability of critical medical supplies. As global supply chains are disrupted and delayed by this pandemic, health supply chain workers risk being overlooked and ignored. Proper working conditions, including psychosocial support, must be made available to these workers. Now more than ever, enhanced coordination is needed at the global and country levels to pool resources, avoid duplication of efforts, and, above all, address the needs of the workers whose skills and commitment keep supply chains functioning.

Join us for a webinar co-hosted by Chemonics International and People that Deliver that will bring together health supply chain professionals from the public and private sectors to share insights and experiences on how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected their supply chain operations. The speakers will share practical resources, tools, and guidance utilized by their own organizations to ensure their supply chain workforce is safe, protected, and supported.

TechNet-21 is pleased to host a discussion with VillageReach and JSI on how supply chains can be adapted to be more responsive to the needs of under-served populations. Too often, vaccines and other essential health products are not available when and where they are needed, particularly in under-served populations. With COVID-19 disruptions to routine immunization leaving an estimated 80 million children at risk for diseases like measles, diphtheria and polio, ensuring vaccines can reach all children is more critical than ever. VillageReach has developed a four-step guide for governments and implementing partners to purposefully consider equity in supply chain design, with a particular focus on reaching four populations: the urban poor, people living in conflict settings, remote or rural populations and migrants. Join us for a review of the guidance, and an example from JSI’s work of what these adaptations can look like in practice.


SPEAKERS:

· Tapiwa Mukwashi, Senior Manager, Supply Chain, VillageReach. Tapiwa has over 15 years of experience in public and private sector supply chains, and currently leads VillageReach’s Supply Chain for Community Health Workers program, implemented in partnership with Last Mile Health in Liberia.

· Mariam Zameer, Manager, Health Systems, VillageReach. Mariam provides technical assistance on designing supply chains and building strong health systems. She is interested in a focus on equity to improve health systems for the most vulnerable, and health financing.

· Wendy Prosser, Senior Technical Officer - Supply Chain, Immunization Center, JSI. Wendy provides technical assistance and strategic guidance on the immunization supply chain across JSI’s country teams to improve the design and management of the supply chain, create processes for data use for decision making, and apply global best practices to the country context.

The COVID-19 pandemic is exposing the deep inequities that undermine global health, especially gender inequities impacting women front line health and care workers. In the Year of the Nurse and Midwife, few health and care workers (many of whom are women) have safe and decent working conditions, appropriate protection and equal and timely pay. How many decision makers in health systems are women? Do we collect sufficient data and evidence to understand the implications of COVID-19 on female health workers? Speakers in this session will share the perspectives of female health workers during this pandemic, and review lessons learnt from previous large-scale outbreaks – how health systems lose when gender equality is ignored, what can be done better, and how we all may gain by applying a gender lens. This event is co-sponsored by the Global Health Centre, Women in Global Health, and GENDRO.

Immunization in the Time of COVID-19

The critical role of community voices in building global resilience against pandemics and maintaining essential services.

An Online conversation hosted by Gavi CSO Constituency in partnership with ACTION, Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, PATH, RESULTS UK & Save the Children

15h00 (CET) on Thursday14th May 2020 

The event will be streamed live in English and French

Follow the link to join: https://live.kudoway.com/ad/220116918650

The COVID-19 pandemic is claiming lives across the globe and causing disruption to the delivery of primary health care services. A critical concern is that the interruption of immunization services poses a major risk for secondary outbreaks of vaccine preventable diseases (VPD). This spotlight on vaccines highlights the importance of routine immunisation systems and calls to question the preparedness of health systems around the world. 

In this online webinar, featuring speakers from Civil Society, Gavi and the WHO, we will identify lessons learnt from strengthening health systems and routine immunisation, reflect on adaptive approaches to maintain routine immunisation during the pandemic and identify the necessary commitments from country partners to achieve equitable access to vaccines against both known and novel pathogens.

World Immunization Week – celebrated in the last week of April (24 to 30 April) – aims to promote the use of vaccines to protect people of all ages against disease. Immunization saves millions of lives every year and is widely recognized as one of the world’s most successful and cost-effective health interventions. Yet, there are still nearly 20 million children in the world today who are not getting the vaccines they need.

The theme this year is #VaccinesWork for All and the campaign will focus on how vaccines – and the people who develop, deliver and receive them – are heroes by working to protect the health of everyone, everywhere.

2020 campaign objectives

The main goal of the campaign is to urge greater engagement around immunization globally and the importance of vaccination in improving health and wellbeing of everyone, everywhere throughout life.

As part of the 2020 campaign, WHO and partners aim to:

  • Demonstrate the value of vaccines for the health of children, communities and the world.
  • Show how routine immunization is the foundation for strong, resilient health systems and universal health coverage.
  • Highlight the need to build on immunization progress while addressing gaps, including through increased investment in vaccines and immunization.

Given that WHO has designated 2020 the International Year of the Nurse and the Midwife, WHO will highlight nurses and midwives for their crucial role as early vaccine champions for new parents and parents-to-be.
