Advocating at the subnational level during COVID-19

August 6, 2020

4:00-5:30 PM EAT | 9:00-10:30 AM EST

The COVID-19 pandemic is transforming the world around us—shifting priorities, repurposing resources, changing accountability practices, and accelerating policy development. In the absence of face-to-face interaction, the pandemic is also changing the way health advocates approach policymakers—increasingly through virtual means. Virtual engagements are often more difficult at the subnational level, excluding critical community and civil society voices in decision-making. 

As decision-making, accountability, and action is increasingly taking place subnationally, how must our 'traditional' approaches to advocating at the subnational level shift as a result of the pandemic? How can we facilitate and ensure community perspectives feed into national decision-making? How can we improve the capacity of sub-national level advocates for impactful engagement in the new normal?

We hope to explore these and more questions in the second conversation in PATH's virtual learning series: Health Advocacy in the New Normal. This series aims to catalyze conversations and exchange best practices among health advocates and policymakers by bringing together perspectives from across the African continent to reflect upon what is working and how we are evolving the practice of advocacy for impact in the health sector.

The evolution of battery-less Solar Direct Drive (SDD)

This interactive workshop presents the complete picture of how remote vaccine refrigeration technology has evolved, from early solar+battery systems (which often failed) to “battery-free” solar direct drive (SDD) technology that is incredibly reliable. Learn about the new ways that solar direct drive now provides a wide variety of power to off-grid health facilities beyond just refrigeration, including cell phone charging, lighting and medical equipment and even AC power and freezing temperatures. And learn why new vaccine initiatives may require even more elaborate solutions than ever before. 

This course is available online via Zoom. Once you register for the training, you will receive login details in your confirmation email.

This webinar will be not recorded so please plan to attend it live.

INSCRIVEZ-VOUS: https://www.sapics.org/events/EventDetails.aspx?id=1394991&group=

La pandémie actuelle du Covid-19 ébranle les systèmes de santé des pays à revenu faible et moyen (PRFM) et met leur personnel à risque. Le travail des personnels de santé clinique, qui traitent quotidiennement les patients dans les hôpitaux et les cliniques du monde entier, dépend des produits que le personnel de la chaîne d'approvisionnement en santé peut lui fournir. Sous-estimé à tort, ce dernier est fondamental pour assurer la disponibilité des produits et garantir la continuité des services de soins.

De nombreux webinaires focalisés sur la chaîne d'approvisionnement, y compris dans le domaine de la santé, ont été organisés par des organisations et institutions publiques et privées depuis l'épidémie. Cependant, la plupart de ces événements en ligne sont dispensés en anglais, ce qui limite l'accès à de précieuses ressources et informations pour la communauté francophone.

Rejoignez-nous pour un webinaire co-organisé par SAPICS et People that Deliver qui réunira des professionnels de la chaîne d'approvisionnement en santé des secteurs public et privé pour partager des idées et des expériences sur la façon dont la pandémie COVID-19 a affecté les opérations de leur chaîne d'approvisionnement. Les présentatrices mettront l’accent sur les besoins et bonnes pratiques du personnel de la chaîne d'approvisionnement de santé. Elles discuteront également de la façon dont leurs organisations soutiennent les travailleurs pour veiller à ce qu’ils soient protégés et soutenus, en prenant en considération le contexte des pays francophones en Afrique sub-saharienne.

Présentatrices confirmées:

Fernanda Debellian, Directeur régional, amérique centrale et du sud
Association pour la Gestion des Chaînes d’Approvisionnement (ASCM)

Dr. Sokhna Guaye, Chef de service Gestion des Stocks /Chaîne de froid

Health systems in low- and middle-income countries are facing the urgent pressure of the COVID-19 pandemic. Health supply chain workers are essential - ensuring continuity of care as well as the availability of critical medical supplies. As global supply chains are disrupted and delayed by this pandemic, health supply chain workers risk being overlooked and ignored. Proper working conditions, including psychosocial support, must be made available to these workers. Now more than ever, enhanced coordination is needed at the global and country levels to pool resources, avoid duplication of efforts, and, above all, address the needs of the workers whose skills and commitment keep supply chains functioning.

Join us for a webinar co-hosted by Chemonics International and People that Deliver that will bring together health supply chain professionals from the public and private sectors to share insights and experiences on how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected their supply chain operations. The speakers will share practical resources, tools, and guidance utilized by their own organizations to ensure their supply chain workforce is safe, protected, and supported.

TechNet-21 is pleased to host a discussion with VillageReach and JSI on how supply chains can be adapted to be more responsive to the needs of under-served populations. Too often, vaccines and other essential health products are not available when and where they are needed, particularly in under-served populations. With COVID-19 disruptions to routine immunization leaving an estimated 80 million children at risk for diseases like measles, diphtheria and polio, ensuring vaccines can reach all children is more critical than ever. VillageReach has developed a four-step guide for governments and implementing partners to purposefully consider equity in supply chain design, with a particular focus on reaching four populations: the urban poor, people living in conflict settings, remote or rural populations and migrants. Join us for a review of the guidance, and an example from JSI’s work of what these adaptations can look like in practice.


SPEAKERS:

· Tapiwa Mukwashi, Senior Manager, Supply Chain, VillageReach. Tapiwa has over 15 years of experience in public and private sector supply chains, and currently leads VillageReach’s Supply Chain for Community Health Workers program, implemented in partnership with Last Mile Health in Liberia.

· Mariam Zameer, Manager, Health Systems, VillageReach. Mariam provides technical assistance on designing supply chains and building strong health systems. She is interested in a focus on equity to improve health systems for the most vulnerable, and health financing.

· Wendy Prosser, Senior Technical Officer - Supply Chain, Immunization Center, JSI. Wendy provides technical assistance and strategic guidance on the immunization supply chain across JSI’s country teams to improve the design and management of the supply chain, create processes for data use for decision making, and apply global best practices to the country context.

Dear Colleagues,

The World Health Organization (WHO) and the Boost Community, in partnership with TechNet-21 and The Geneva Learning Foundation, are happy to offer an interactive webinar: How Immunization Professionals Can Address Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) During COVID-19. This webinar will take place Friday, May 29 at 3:00 PM CEST (check local time) (please note new day/time).

The COVID-19 pandemic is exposing the deep inequities that undermine global health, especially gender inequities impacting women front line health and care workers. In the Year of the Nurse and Midwife, few health and care workers (many of whom are women) have safe and decent working conditions, appropriate protection and equal and timely pay. How many decision makers in health systems are women? Do we collect sufficient data and evidence to understand the implications of COVID-19 on female health workers? Speakers in this session will share the perspectives of female health workers during this pandemic, and review lessons learnt from previous large-scale outbreaks – how health systems lose when gender equality is ignored, what can be done better, and how we all may gain by applying a gender lens. This event is co-sponsored by the Global Health Centre, Women in Global Health, and GENDRO.
