The BID Learning Network (BLN) invites you to join a three-part webinar series about experiences and lessons learned on COVID-19 vaccine introduction from Africa. The first webinar in this series will feature lessons from Uganda, Zambia, Ghana, and Zimbabwe.

This webinar will be of interest to data management specialists, EPI managers, health management information system (HMIS) specialists, ICT specialists and other health care specialists committed to improving data collection, quality and use across health systems.

As the world grapples with the COVID-19 pandemic, many countries have begun vaccination campaigns and lessons have emerged on the challenges and ways to increase the success of the COVID-19 vaccine introduction.

The vaccine introduction process requires that countries undergo a trajectory of self-assessment in relation to readiness, planning, coordination, management, vaccine safety and surveillance as stipulated by WHO guidelines. While some African countries have commenced the vaccination, others are still in the infancy stage of the process and as they prepare for the introduction of the COVID-19 vaccination, many lessons are being learned along the way. 

Thus BID Learning Network (BLN) has planned a series of webinars and virtual panel discussions on the lessons learned from the introduction and subsequent roll -out of the COVID-19 vaccine in Africa. These interactions are intended to promote mutual learning and lesson sharing among the public, private and international health care practitioners for equitable distribution of the COVID-19 vaccines in African countries.

Join Nethope, FCDO-funded COVIDaction and GPSDD to discuss vaccine allocation data challenges and solutions

Covid-19 vaccines are just beginning to reach low and middle income countries (LMICs), but before they start saving lives, governments and other actors must create national vaccine allocation strategies. Data is emerging as a key priority in creating equitable and impactful strategies – however, many LMICs lack the data and easy-to-use analytic tools to effectively design these plans.

On Thursday 15th April, the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) and the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data (GPSDD) will be joining a NetHope-hosted call to discuss leveraging data to support low and middle income countries (LMICs) in their vaccine prioritization efforts.

GPSDD and COVIDaction will present findings from a recent assessment on data gaps and needs in LMIC governments as it relates to Covid-19 vaccine allocation and prioritization. You will also learn about the Vaccine Data Co-Lab's open call for matchmaking funds, and opportunities to receive support. Please join to learn from other organizations’ innovative data approaches, and share your vaccine allocation data challenges with those seeking to help.

High-quality data – that is accessible in easy-to-use formats – is at the foundation of equitable, transparent and efficient vaccine delivery, and feeds directly into micro-planning at the national, regional and local level. Ensuring equitable global vaccine distribution is one of the biggest challenges facing the world today.

Why Attend:

  1. To hear data challenges in LMICs in relation to vaccine prioritization, allocation and rollout
  2. To learn about innovative data approaches to solving data gaps and supporting government decision makers
  3. To hear from the Vaccine Data Co-Lab about the fund and matchmaking opportunity
  4. To share vaccine data challenges your team has come across to inform the Vaccine Data Co-Lab

About this webinar

With this webinar, we would like to share with you some of the new tools and resources WHO has developed to support countries in monitoring inequalities in immunization: 

French, Portuguese and Spanish versions of the Inequality monitoring in immunization: a step-by-step manual, a detailed guide to monitoring inequalities in immunization.

Updated versions of the Health Equity Assessment Toolkit (HEAT and HEAT Plus), a software application for assessing health inequalities, including in immunization.

 

Background

The WHO Immunization Agenda 2030: a global strategy to leave no one behind envisions a world where everyone, everywhere, at every age, fully benefits from vaccines for good health and wellbeing. The new Gavi five-year strategy (‘Gavi 5.0’) has the vision to ‘leave no one behind with immunization’ and increase equitable use of vaccines. This year’s World Immunization Week highlights that #VaccinesWork to bring us closer – including to a fairer, healthier world.

 

Key messages

Monitoring inequalities in immunization is essential to ensuring no one is left behind and achieving equity in immunization, including for COVID-19.Inequality monitoring in immunization should be an integral part of a country’s health information system.

To support countries in building capacity for the uptake and improvement of health inequality monitoring, including in immunization, the WHO has developed several tools and resources, including a global status report, an in-depth equity report, a step-by-step manual and a software application. All materials are publicly available via the WHO Health Equity Monitor.

This April 2021, WHO is launching FrenchPortuguese and Spanish versions of the Inequality monitoring in immunization: a step-by-step manual as well as new versions of the Health Equity Assessment Toolkit (HEAT and HEAT Plus) software.

Going forward, WHO will continue to support countries in monitoring inequalities in immunization (e.g. through self-paced online courses and facilitated training workshops). WHO will also continue to generate global evidence on inequality in immunization, including in zero-dose children and gender barriers to immunization.

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!

During World Immunization Week 2021, the International Vaccine Access Center will co-host a panel event with Shot@Life to highlight how COVID-19 has exposed and exacerbated global health inequities, and how the new Immunization Agenda 2030 Framework for Action charts a path to equitable immunization coverage for everyone. 

Prior to the pandemic, more children than ever before had been immunized. At the same time, far too many were left behind; nearly 14 million children never received any vaccinations.

Although COVID-19 has taken a massive toll on the world, it is time to look not just at the challenges but also at the opportunities. Now is the time to energize a global movement and collective accountability to make vaccines equitably accessible to everyone. The Immunization Agenda 2030 creates a clear vision of a world where everyone, everywhere, at every age fully benefits from vaccines for good health and well-being. Diseases do not respect borders, and neither should our fight for full global immunization.

Our esteemed panel of advocates and immunization experts will take a hard look at what it will take to make that vision a reality in the next decade: How will gaps in immunization coverage and equity be addressed, especially among marginalized and disadvantaged groups in low- and middle-income countries? How will immunization systems identify children who have never been vaccinated, ensuring they don’t miss out on protection from deadly disease?

Join us to find out and discuss how we can work together to ensure everyone, everywhere is protected by full immunization.

Panelists:
Ann Lindstrand, Unit Head of the EPI and the Department of Immunization, Vaccines and Biologicals at WHO
Chizoba Wonodi, Nigeria Country Director at IVAC and Immunization Director for USAID's MOMENTUM Country and Global Leadership project
Martha Rebour, ED of the UN Foundation’s Shot@Life campaign
