Background on EYE
EYE stands for Eliminate Yellow Fever Epidemics. It is a joint initiative between the World Health Organization, UNICEF and Gavi, the vaccine alliance. We also have other important partners, such as the US Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
This initiative has been in place since 2017 and will run through 2026. It was formed as a response to a deadly outbreak in Angola in 2016, which spread to the Democratic Republic of Congo and China.
Background on Go.Data
Go.Data is an outbreak response tool developed by the World Health Organization in collaboration with Global Outbreak Alert and Response Network (GOARN) partners.
The Go.Data platform is comprehensive and free for use by Member States and partners to support and facilitate field-level outbreak response activities. It includes functionality for case investigation, contact follow up and visualization of chains of transmission.
Yellow fever template
The Go.Data Yellow Fever Outbreak Template is designed to enable rapid and standardized set-up of field data collection parameters for investigation and contact tracing during yellow fever outbreaks. The template is aligned with the most recent WHO and partners’ outbreak investigation guidelines for yellow fever, and will help in collecting and managing information from cases, including laboratory information, hospitalization data and other variables. The validated outbreak can be generated in a matter of minutes for data collection by field surveillance officers.
What is the EYE learning strategy?
