Introducing the BLN/Gavi Data Quality and Use (BLN DQU) Collaborative

, , , , ,

The BID Learning Network (BLN) is partnering with Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, to work with Gavi countries to improve data quality and use through peer learning and interaction, coupled with collective analysis and resolution of immunization data-related problems. The peer interaction and learning activities will be conducted virtually using different formats, including webinars, problem-solving sessions, panel discussions, debates and training, as appropriate. Continuous interaction between peers will be facilitated through WhatsApp groups and other social media channels. The countries will function as a collaborative, collectively setting desired performances and strategies to achieve these desired levels of performance. The BLN/Gavi Data Quality and Use (BLN DQU) Collaborative will work with partners, such as the World Health Organization (WHO), to identify opportunities for learning and capacity building among country personnel managing immunization data in their countries. A critical part of this work will include monitoring and documenting the experiences and lessons that arise out of this collaborative. Learn more about the BLN DQU Collaborative.

BID Regional Program Concept Note

, , , , ,
Global

Over the past five years, the PATH staff based in Africa that made up the BID team have gained significant experience in the implementation of data quality and use interventions to improve immunization service delivery. This includes deep knowledge about the holistic design, introduction, adoption, and scale up and sustainability of digital interventions. BID will leverage this experience, in partnership with the BID Learning Network, to introduce a BID Regional Mentorship program. The BID Regional Mentorship program will support African countries as they work to select, introduce, and implement digital health and change management interventions to improve their routine immunization programs. To learn more about the BID Regional Program, review the concept note.
