Ending the COVID-19 pandemic is dependent upon all countries having access to vaccines. But demand is outpacing supply by billions of doses, and many countries still don’t have access to the vaccines they need to control the virus and protect their populations. 

This PATH Live Forum will take a closer look at what has worked—and what hasn’t worked—in the global effort to increase equitable access to COVID-19 vaccines. Join our panelists in a discussion about priorities for this pandemic, as well as how to build sustainable immunization systems for future pandemic preparedness.

Ensuring that immunization services are accessible to all individuals is an essential part of primary health care and achieving universal health coverage (UHC). In recent years, vaccines have protected more of the world’s population than ever before, increasing life expectancy and economic growth; yet the use of immunization services has flatlined for a decade. Strategic Priority 1 of the recently launched Immunization Agenda 2030 provides a roadmap that aims to increase and sustain vaccination coverage within a primary healthcare agenda that supports UHC. 

USAID's MOMENTUM Country and Global Leadership invites you to attend a webinar, “A Roadmap for Progress in Global Immunization Systems,” on Wednesday, May 26 at 9:30am ET. 

Panelists will raise awareness among the technical, practitioner, and advocacy communities on the objectives of IA2030 Strategic Priority 1 around primary health care and UHC for immunization services. Please join us as we examine and unpack the core principles of IA2030, ensuring our efforts are people-focused, country-owned, partnership-based, and data-enabled.

PATH’s Living Labs Initiative used human-centered design methods to gather feedback on proposed labels for COVID-19 vaccine vials and cartons. Healthcare workers in Kenya and Zambia interacted with the labels and made recommendations for vaccine manufacturers for labels for future batches. This webinar will cover the human-centered design approaches used in this study and the feedback gathered on healthcare worker preferences for vaccine labelling. Additionally, PATH’s experts will discuss other insights gathered related to the support and training healthcare workers desire to feel confident in administering the COVID-19 vaccine.

Join this EPI-WIN webinar: Vexing questions about vaccine communication and engagement - Fundamentals of Risk Communication and Community Engagement (FoRCCE) Series
 
The importance of how we communicate and engage populations is critical to maintain or increase public trust and confidence in vaccines. Together with social processes and practical factors, communication and engagement are key drivers of vaccination uptake.
This Q&A session aims to answer the vexing questions we’re now facing with communication and engagement around the COVID-19 vaccine rollout.

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.

With all eyes on vaccines, World Immunization Week 2021 offers an unprecedented opportunity to build public trust in the value of all vaccines and help build long-term support for immunization.

In particular, World Immunization Week 2021 will aim to:

  • Reframe the global vaccine conversation to focus on the importance of vaccines
  • Highlight the many ways in which vaccines enable us to live healthy, productive lives by preventing the spread of vaccine-preventable diseases
  • Demonstrate social proof that the broader public already values and trust vaccines
  • This year’s campaign looks to build solidarity and trust in vaccination as a public good that saves lives and protects health. To this end, we will be seeking more partners to join us, bringing people together in support of a lifesaving cause.

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, vaccinating priority populations against the virus is a top priority for health systems worldwide. This global focus on vaccines provides an opportunity to elevate the importance of routine immunization and consider new ways to reach under-vaccinated populations with life-saving vaccines. In addition to opportunities mentioned, there may be risks, including diverting health system attention away from routine immunization and possible spillover effects from concerns about COVID-19 vaccine safety.

Please join MOMENTUM on April 27, 2021 at 8:30 a.m. EDT for a webinar on Maintaining Focus on Routine Immunization through COVID-19 Vaccination. This webinar will explore early experiences and strategies to leverage the focus on COVID-19 to strengthen routine immunization.
