BLN Webinar: Lessons from the Landscape Analysis of Electronic Immunization Registries

The BID Learning Network (BLN) invites you to join a webinar titled “Lessons from the Landscape Analysis of Electronic Immunization Registries,” with Jennifer Pancholi, senior manager for Digital Solutions at VillageReach.

In 2019, VillageReach launched a landscape analysis about the implementation of electronic immunization registries (EIRs) in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). During this webinar the presenter will discuss the findings of the analysis which revealed valuable insights for deployment of EIRs around four broad areas relating to sustainability, functional requirements, promising practices for deployment, and improving immunization coverage. The speaker will share the existing knowledge gaps that were identified and provide further direction for enhancing the usefulness and value of EIRs. For more information on the EIR landscape analysis report please visit the VillageReach website.

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

Join our speakers on Thursday, 20th August 2020 from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Central African Time [CAT].

Please register in advance to receive instructions on how to join the webinar. If you have any questions, contact the BLN community coordinator, Catherine Muyawala at cmuyawala@path.org.
