The 2017 World Health Organization vaccination coverage survey Scholars and their course team request the honor of your company at the Commencement Exercises to be held online on Wednesday, 24 January 2018.

Date: 24 January 2018
Time: 15h00 (3 PM) UTC+1 Geneva
Registration link: https://bit.ly/surveyscholar17
Contact: surveys@learning.foundation

This event will be broadcast on Facebook Live and YouTube, so you are encouraged to download the invitation and share it with your colleagues and professional networks. Family members and friends are also welcome to attend.

This event will feature presentations from Survey Scholar participants and the course team. You are encouraged to join if you have an interest in vaccination coverage surveys and/or in new approaches to learning and capacity-building.

Please do not delay with your own registration as the event can welcome a limited number of participants.

Over 17 weeks, Survey Scholars engaged in weekly Internet-based group discussion and presentation, self-study, and weekly assignments to develop the following projects: 1) a survey concept note, 2) the review of a draft vaccination coverage survey protocol and the write-up of the sampling section of a protocol; and 3) a write-up of the results and interpretation, discussion (with limitations), conclusion and recommendations of a survey report; or the analysis of survey data (those in the “analyst track”).

WHO’s Survey Scholar initiative not only supports the development of technical competencies, but also leadership and critical thinking, using the Scholar Approach, developed by the University of Illinois College of Education and the Geneva Learning Foundation. This approach combines community of practice, knowledge co-construction, and peer review to support project-based learning. It was first piloted in 2016 by WHO to support country-level action planning based on the Global Routine Immunization Strategies and Practices (GRISP) guidelines.

Recognizing the need to strengthen epidemiological surveillance of diseases at a community level, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) funded the MEASURE Evaluation project together with the Ministry of Health in Côte d’Ivoire, and embarked on implementing a community-based early warning system for epidemic-prone diseases such as the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD), using mobile phone alerts linked to the District Health Information System v2 (DHIS2) platform. In this webinar, listen to our speaker from the Cote-d’Ivoire as he shares Côte d’Ivoire’s experience with implementing a disease surveillance system with community health workers at the center to provide an Early Warning System (EWS) using SMS alerts to the different levels of the health reporting pyramid. The speaker will discuss some of the critical issues around the integration of the EWS module within the DHIS2 and the importance of utilizing community-level personnel for effective detection of epidemic outbreaks for rapid response. The presenter will also highlight the key challenges, lessons learned in the implementation process and opportunities for improvement of the surveillance system. This presentation should be of interest to data management, health management information system, and primary health care specialists with a keen interest in integration and innovative use of data management systems.
