Curated by:
CoVDP topic page graphic
A ‘Learning Collective Initiative’ has been established under the CoVDP to provide targeted support to 34 concerted support countries. This workstream will collect, consolidate, and share lessons learned, best practices, and challenges in planning and operationalizing COVID-19 vaccination uptake. This series is primarily directed at national authorities who are responsible for managing or making key decisions on the deployment, implementation and monitoring of COVID-19 vaccines. The secondary target audience includes partners in the one country team who can provide desired technical support.
 

This 6-session Learning Collective Initiative series will be hosted in partnership with Project ECHO. Each session will be 90 minutes featuring a brief didactic presentation and two countries presenting their learnings from the COVID -19 vaccination with focused thematic areas on the best practices and challenges. Details on the topic and the presenters will be sent 1 week prior to each session.

 

Links to recordings, presentation slides, and consolidated participant question and answer (Q&A) documents, as well as additional resources, will be available for all sessions of this webinar series. To ask questions or share information on any aspect of the 'Learning Collective Initiative' in Covid-19 Vaccine Delivery Partnership, you can reply to our dedicated forum post (insert link) or join the TechNet-21 Telegram group on CoVDP Learning Collective Initiative (insert link).
