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.

Join us to mark World Immunization Week 2020 with a series of remote events on 'vaccines throughout the life course'. The theme of World Immunization Week this year is #VaccinesWorkforAll. The WHO has produced a series of case studies and materials highlighting the important impact of vaccines around the world

The VaC programme aims to highlight research work at LSHTM and within our networks on vaccines, each day looking at a vaccine or disease that is important to a specific age group or at a particular stage of life. In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic the VaC will continue to promote work on diverse vaccines in given the vital role that immunization plays in global health.

Day 1 of World Immunization Week on Friday the 24th of April we start with an event looking at vaccines in pregnancy with a joint webinar with the MARCH Centre focusing on work towards a Group B Streptococcus (GBS) vaccine for pregnant women. We are also joined by one of the directors of the leading GBS charity in the UK which provides information and support to families affected by GBS.

Day 2 on Monday the 27th of April we move onto vaccines in newborns with a focus on the Hepatitis B vaccines. We get perspectives on this important vaccine from researchers and clinicians working in African contexts including in the Gambia. The threat to this vaccine in the context of COVID-19 will also be discussed. This event will not be live, but a webinar recording will be streamed on the day.

On Day 3, Tuesday the 28th of April we have a live webinar on pneumococcal vaccines as part of the focus on vaccines in young children. Experts from LSHTM in London and at the MRC Unit the Gambia contribute to this event covering research on the schedule of pneumococcal vaccines, the need to understand pneumococcal transmission, recent modelling work and work on pneumococcal phyogenetics.

On Day 4 Wednesday the 29th of April we focus on vaccines in adolescents looking at the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine. Students from the STIRIG and VaC student groups present findings from their survey among student peers on HPV vaccination rates and knowledge. 

The final day of the programme on Thursday the 30th of April  we look at vaccines in older adults mainly addressing the UK context. We are joined by both internal and external speakers who will discuss why vaccines are an important preventative tool for elderly populations and how we can address some of the challenges of reaching these groups.

On Friday May 1st we round off the week and this series of webinars with a special event on COVID-19 in the context of vaccine development and impact of the pandemic on routine vaccination programs. LSHTM researchers will share insights into the current landscape and timelines of COVID-vaccine development and reflect upon the “collateral damage” that could potentially result through the deviation of attention away from routine immunization programs. We also hear from LSHTM experts who have worked on vaccine development and clinical trials in other pandemic situations and discuss lessons learned from these experiences.

The BID Learning Network invites you to join a webinar panel discussion on “Electronic Immunization Registries and the COVID-19 Response.” This will be an open discussion on how to leverage routine health system data to understand the impacts of COVID-19. We will start by sharing experiences across Tanzania, Zambia, and Vietnam where PATH teams have been supporting the governments to scale and sustain electronic immunization registries (EIRs). EIRs can provide timely data to understand changes in immunization patterns as a result of COVID-19 social distancing measures, changes in service delivery, or interruptions in supply chains. We will discuss opportunities to use these data and open the discussion to hear from others on how they are using other data sources to understand COVID-19 health system impacts.

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

Join our speakers, on Thursday, 23rd April 2020 from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Central African Time [CAT].

To join the webinar, please register in advance at the following Zoom link. If you have any questions, contact the BLN community coordinator, Catherine Muyawala, at [email protected].

Mark your calendars! The International Vaccine Access Center (IVAC) will host a series of webinars to celebrate World Immunization Week, April 24-30, 2020. Please register for the webinars below:

  • Measuring the Economic Impact of Vaccines (REGISTER HERE)
    • Date: April 27, 2020
    • Time: 12:00 PM EST
    • Description: The webinar will present the estimates from the Decade of Vaccine Economics (DoVE) study of the economic benefits and return-on-investment of vaccines against 10 antigens in 73 low-income countries. The webinar will begin with an overview of the methodology used to compute these estimates and then showcase how we apply these methods to calculate the return-on-investment from 2011-2020 and predict the future return-on-investment from 2021-2030.

 

  • VoICE: Using High-impact Evidence for Immunization Advocacy (REGISTER HERE)
    • Date: April 28, 2020
    • Time: 12:00 PM EST
    • Description: This webinar will show how the VoICE tool can be used to synthesize high-quality evidence from across disciplines to support high-impact advocacy messaging that demonstrates the value of vaccines for all people. Immunization is one of the most successful health interventions in the history of medicine, saving millions of lives every year. But the true impact of vaccination is much more far-reaching, benefiting national economies, strengthening health systems, and reducing gaps in equity.

 

  • Are We Ready to Deliver COVID-19 Vaccines to Older Adults? (REGISTER HERE)
    • Date: April 29, 2020
    • Time: 12:00 PM EST
    • Description: A COVID-19 vaccine could be available within a year to 18 months, but is the world ready to deliver vaccines to older adults, who are at increased risk for severe outcomes from COVID-19 and other vaccine preventable diseases? This webinar will discuss the status of current adult vaccine programs around the world; the gaps in countries with and without programs currently in place; and the data and actions needed to enable successful deployment of a novel coronavirus vaccine in an equitable manner.

 

  • Protecting Vaccine Programs in the Era of COVID-19 (REGISTER HERE)
    • Date: April 30, 2020
    • Time: 12:00 PM EST
    • Description: The COVID-19 pandemic has the potential to have significant effects on routine immunization programs due to the burden on the health system, physical distancing requirements and reluctance by people to seek vaccination. Previous outbreaks such as Ebola have resulted in lowered coverage of routine vaccines, leading to outbreaks of preventable disease like measles. What do we know about how countries are responding so far to protect their vaccine programs? What principles has WHO established to guide countries on routine immunization during the pandemic and as coronavirus infections subside?

You can make a difference.
If you wait for those with authority to lead, you may wait a long time.
Leadership is about everyday change that adds up to consequential change.
Adaptive leadership is about pushing the boundaries to make a difference.

Dear VPPN Member!

Happy New Year! My name is Andrea Papan and I am the new VPPN Community of Practice Manager. I look forward continuing the great work that has taken place over these last three years and to facilitating an inclusive, responsive and dynamic exchange between all VPPN peers of as our community of practice flourishes in this next exciting phase!

We are pleased to announce that The Vaccine Procurement Practitioners Network (VPPN) has joined TechNet-21.org, the global network for immunization professionals. (Note, please bookmark this website.) The VPPN is a Group site within TechNet-21 and remains a private and invitation only site. All the content from the VPPN has been moved over to the new platform.

How to begin using the new VPPN?

  • Your previous VPPN membership has been moved over and your account is now active. There is nothing you need to do.
  • Your email now becomes your login and previous VPPN password is the same for this new site. If you have forgotten your password you, click "Forgot password" under the login and follow the steps. However, if you have any trouble, please feel free to contact me at [email protected].
  • Once logged in, to access the VPPN Group site from the TechNet-21 homepage: click the arrow by your name and profile picture or initials on the very top menu, choose ‘My groups’ in the drop down menu, and select the VPPN.

What are the benefits of this migration for members?

  • As a VPPN member you can access two platforms with one login: the VPPN and TechNet-21
  • In addition to connecting with VPPN peers, you gain access to TechNet-21, a global network of immunization professionals committed to strengthening immunization services by sharing experiences, coordinating activities, and helping to formulate optimal policies. The platform offers an extensive repository with approximately 4000 immunization resources.

How do I learn more?

An official launch and online sharing session will take place on Thursday, 30 January 2020 at 9am CET and all VPPN members are invited to participate. The Zoom Meeting link is at the bottom of this page. The session will include:

  • An introduction to the new VPPN Group site and how to use it,
  • An onboarding to TechNet-21 as both a tool and a way of engaging together as global network of immunization professionals, and
  • An outline of the upcoming knowledge strategy for the VPPN as we join together in this next phase of knowledge sharing, peer learning and collaborative problem solving relating to vaccine procurement!

A warm welcome to everyone as we open up this new space! I encourage you to please take a moment and briefly say hello and re-introduce yourself on the VPPN Discussions forum. 

We look forward to seeing you on January 30th

Kind regards,

Andrea

In July 2019, 644 Scholars from 55 countries pledged to improve immunization outcomes. In this Special Event, Scholars will share their experiences in the Impact Accelerator, a new model for leading change developed by immunization Scholars from over 90 countries.

What is the Accelerator?
The Accelerator is a new system to foster collaborative leadership in ways that can contribute to systemic change.

Scholars who successfully complete a course are convened to use what they learned to achieve impact.

In July 2019, 644 immunization Scholars from 55 countries pledged to improve immunization outcomes.

During the first Impact Accelerator pilot, immunization Scholars self-organized groups in 24  countries –  including priority countries Chad, Cameroon, Guinea, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Niger, Nigeria, Pakistan, India and Ethiopia.

Most sought and rapidly secured support from government teams  to ensure their action could contribute to national priorities.

Why did we create the Accelerator?
Some countries are facing complex challenges hindering progress toward the global goals for immunization. New approaches are needed.

Since 2016, immunization Scholars have been turning knowledge into action through the immunization Scholar programme.

In a few countries, Scholars self-initiated informal, motivated groups of professionals operating across agencies, to transform ideas into collaborative project implementation.

Observing these voluntary dynamics, we saw potential for systemic change – and immediately convened Scholars to develop a new system to support this across the network.
