The COVID-19 Vaccine Equity Project invites Boost community members to an interactive panel where we will update the community on the program's status; host a live conversation featuring national and global immunization professionals; and facilitate a co-creation session to discuss the challenges, support and enablers needed to plan and prepare for fair COVID-19 vaccine delivery. 
 
You will walk out of this panel with:

⚡️ Deeper understanding of the COVID-19 Vaccine Equity Project and how to engage with us
⚡️ Insight into countries concerns, needs, and desired support as they prepare for COVID-19 vaccine delivery 
⚡️ Perspectives from national and global immunization professionals on current vaccine preparedness efforts, including insights into the work being done by the Country Readiness and Delivery (CRD) unit at COVAX
⚡️ Key learnings and considerations on what is required for country vaccine delivery action planning 

We hope you will join us to discuss this critical and timely topic! Please note that speakers will be announced next week.

Provision of high quality, people-centered services are key to increasing acceptance and uptake of immunization. Using illustrative examples, we explore the different components which make for quality service experiences that drive demand and uptake of immunization services, and how resource management (including supply) plays a critical role in this delivery model.

Presenter(s): Francine Ganter Restrepo (WHO); Kate Bagshaw (JSI)

This session will investigate the ways in which national immunization programs can reach particular Covid-19 vaccine target groups, such as healthcare workers and the elderly. While most of the countries have conducted multiple mass vaccination campaign for infants and adolescents, many other may not have yet developed adequate experience vaccinating the elderly. We have conveyed a panel of global and regional supply chain experts from WHO and UNICEF to discuss strategies for adapting existing practices to ensure that the future requirements of immunizing target groups with a new Covid-19 vaccine can be met. We will be presenting perspectives from two regions: Europe and Africa.

Adama Sawadogo (UNICEF PD) will present the strategies under consideration at the global level to reach and vaccinate healthcare workers and the elderly.

Oleg Benes (WHO EURO), will present the existing immunization delivery platforms in Europe for healthcare workers and elderly and how these platforms can be leveraged for the covid-19 vaccination.

Serge Ganivet (UNICEF WCARO) and Claude Mangobo (WHO AFRO) will present the potential strategies and the challenges for reaching and vaccinating these targets groups in the context of the African region.

Presenters: 

Souleymane Kone (WHO)

The Committee meets three times annually at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Atlanta, Georgia. Meetings are open to the public and available online via webcast. During the meetings, members and CDC staff present findings and discuss vaccine research and scientific data related to vaccine effectiveness and safety, clinical trial results, and manufacturer’s labeling or package insert information. Outbreaks of vaccine-preventable disease or changes in vaccine supply, such as vaccine shortages, also are reviewed during meetings.

The Ministry of Health, Montenegro and WHO/Europe will hold a South-eastern Europe health ministers’ meeting to discuss the importance of vaccination as a critical public health intervention and a public good. Recognizing the value immunization represents in terms of health, social and economic returns, the meeting will highlight the challenges and opportunities for Member States in the south-eastern European (SEE) region. SEE ministers of health will be invited to endorse a “statement of intent”, and the process of developing a regional roadmap, with specific strategic objectives and targets to improve the impact of national immunization programmes, will be initiated.

Short presentations and statements will set the scene before a roundtable discussion is co-chaired by the Minister of Health of Montenegro and the WHO Regional Director for Europe.

Objectives
Underline how strong national immunization systems are an integral part of a well-functioning health system and that immunization programmes benefit from integration in strong health systems through coordination with other programmes, the private sector, partners and communities to deliver existing and introduce new vaccines, ensure vaccination throughout the life-course and attain quality, equity and coverage goals;
