As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, vaccinating priority populations against the virus is a top priority for health systems worldwide. This global focus on vaccines provides an opportunity to elevate the importance of routine immunization and consider new ways to reach under-vaccinated populations with life-saving vaccines. In addition to opportunities mentioned, there may be risks, including diverting health system attention away from routine immunization and possible spillover effects from concerns about COVID-19 vaccine safety.

Please join MOMENTUM on April 27, 2021 at 8:30 a.m. EDT for a webinar on Maintaining Focus on Routine Immunization through COVID-19 Vaccination. This webinar will explore early experiences and strategies to leverage the focus on COVID-19 to strengthen routine immunization. Hear from the USAID Immunization Team, USAID Mozambique, Gavi, and the MOMENTUM Routine Immunization Transformation and Equity project. Register here to join!

In collaboration with Common Thread, LNCT captured the vaccination journeys of two families within a H’mong community in Yên Bái Province, Vietnam. Their stories, captured in their own words, show how community engagement strategies can be used effectively to create empathy and build demand for vaccines among vulnerable groups. LNCT and Common Thread are pleased to share these case studies with you at an upcoming launch on Thursday, March 18th. During this video launch webinar, Common Thread will walk participants through the two journeys, reflect on the strategies used in the community, and explore how these materials can be used to build skills to generate demand for vaccines amongst ethnic minorities in other contexts.

All eyes are on the global rollout of COVID-19 vaccines. Over the coming months, vaccine manufacturers, regulatory authorities, logistics experts and healthcare practitioners alike are facing the daunting challenge of delivering billions of vaccine doses around the world and ensuring that every dose remains safe and effective.

Achieving the public confidence and broad uptake of COVID-19 vaccines needed to reach population immunity and curb the virus’s spread will require an unprecedented effort among health workers, scientists and stakeholders at every step of the supply chain.

During development and delivery, how will we guarantee that quality is maintained for authorized and approved vaccines? How will we build and strengthen health system capacity to implement quality vaccination services, especially in LMICs facing insufficient health system resources and inadequate vaccine supply? Finding the solutions to these questions will be a defining challenge of 2021 and a key hurdle to getting vaccines to the people who need them the most. This virtual event will convene two expert panels moderated by Zain Verjee (former CNN International Anchor) with participation from Soumya Swaminathan (WHO), Bruce Gellin (Sabin Vaccine Institute), Ron Piervincenzi (USP) and others from organizations central to the COVID-19 response who will dive into existing concerns and explore novel, future solutions that will bolster public trust in the vaccine effort and help ensure an equitable rollout.

Please submit any questions you may have for the event Q&A in advance to virtualevents@usp.org.

In India, the Universal Immunization Program (UIP) has undergone tremendous reform, addressing issues of coverage, equity and quality, and expanding the spectrum of diseases covered by introducing new vaccines like pentavalent, rotavirus and IPV. While the traditional cascade model of face-to-face training has provided a valuable foundation for building the capacity of immunization workers, the model is slow to respond to rapid changes in UIP guidelines, and does not easily address the on-going learning needs of a busy health workforce unable to participate in frequent workshop-style training activities. JSI, under the overall stewardship of the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, Govt. of India, has developed Rapid Immunization Skill Enhancement (RISE), a blended-learning knowledge and skill-building package for health workers in the country. It is a user-centric model that leverages technology (mobile phone, internet) commonly accessible among the health workforce to build immunization knowledge and skills through a series of digital learning sessions. Each self-paced session is based on adult learning principles; learners achieve session objectives by engaging in a variety of audio, animated visuals, reading and interactions, including learning games and quizzes.

Between March and July 2020, RISE was piloted in 5 districts in 5 states of the country. The project targeted more than 2500 health workers; more than 80 per cent of the learners to date have completed the training package, despite the challenges posed by COVID-19. With the very positive experience from the pilot, and the cordial acceptance of the model by health workers across the country, the application may be considered a “game-changer” in the arena of capacity building in the near future with immense potential of scale up not only in immunization, but across other areas in health and development sectors.

 

Please join us to discuss with some of the RISE experts.
