The BID Learning Network (BLN) invites you to watch a webinar entitled “Technology Solutions to Routine Immunization Challenges in Nigeria.” End-to-end supply chain and logistics systems are key components of successful immunization programs. However, in Nigeria, supply chain and logistics systems have encountered numerous challenges particularly on the supply side, such as incomplete and inadequate data on commodity turnover and late deliveries to primary health centers (PHCs). To address these challenges, eHealth Africa (eHA) in close collaboration with the Kano State Primary Health Care Management Board (KPHCMB) developed the Logistics Management Information System (LoMIS).

BLN Webinar: Data Quality and Nominal Electronic Immunization Registries – Lessons Learned from Costa Rica
The BID Learning Network (BLN) invites you to watch our recent webinar entitled “Data Quality and Nominal Electronic Immunization Registries: Lessons Learned from Costa Rica.” Electronic immunization registries (EIRs) have been in existence in Latin America since the late 1980s with Uruguay and Mexico being among the first countries to implement EIRs in 1987 and 1991, respectively. Since then, most of Latin America, including Costa Rica, have been working towards implementing national EIRs. In this webinar, the presenter shares Costa Rica’s experience with implementing the national EIR.

BLN Webinar: Integration of a Community-Based Early Warning System Module into DHIS2 in Cote d’Ivoire
The BID Learning Network (BLN) invites you to join a webinar entitled “Integration of a Community-Based Early Warning System Module into DHIS2 in Cote d’Ivoire.” Recognizing the need to strengthen epidemiological surveillance of diseases at a community level, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) funded the MEASURE Evaluation project together with the Ministry of Health in Côte d’Ivoire, and embarked on implementing a community-based early warning system for epidemic-prone diseases such as the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD), using mobile phone alerts linked to the District Health Information System v2 (DHIS2) platform.

BID Initiative Briefs: Recommendations and Lessons Learned | Introduction
Routine immunizations and new vaccine introductions are two best buys in global health. While immunization coverage has increased dramatically in the last decade, more must be done to ensure every child is reached. To bridge this gap, we need reliable, easily accessed and actionable data on the barriers impeding immunizations, coupled with trained data users at all levels of the health system. The BID Initiative is grounded in the belief that better data, plus better decisions will lead to better health outcomes. Partnering with Tanzania and Zambia, the BID Initiative developed, tested, and rolled out interventions that address some of the most pressing routine immunization service delivery challenges, such as poor visibility into vaccine supplies and difficulty identifying children who default on immunization schedules. These seven briefs summarize the BID Initiative’s approaches and interventions, and shares recommendations and lessons learned for others interested in improving immunization data quality and use.
