BLN Webinar: Building Capacity in Immunization Data Quality and Use through Mentorship – Introducing the BID Regional Mentors


The BID Learning Network (BLN) invites you view a webinar presentation on “Building Capacity in Immunization Data Quality and Use through Mentorship: Introducing the BID Regional Mentors.” In its initial phase, between 2013 and 2018, the BID Initiative introduced a holistic package of interventions in Tanzania and Zambia that included information system products, data management policies, evidence-based practices, and capacity building to empower health workers at all levels of the health system toward data-driven action. During this period, the BID team gained significant experience in the implementation of data quality and use interventions to improve immunization service delivery. Since July 2018, the initiative has transitioned to include the BID Regional Mentorship program. The program will apply its lessons from implementing BID to mentor countries with an interest in improving data quality and use. The mentorship provided under this program will be tailored to country needs and realities. This webinar will be of interest to data management specialists, Expanded Program on Immunization (EPI) managers, health management information system (HMIS) specialists and other health care specialists committed to improving data collection, quality and use across the health system.
