The BID Learning Network (BLN) invites you to a webinar presentation on “Electronic Immunization Registries in Tanzania and Zambia: From Design to Deployment.” The BID Initiative, a PATH project with funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation worked closely with the ministries of health in Tanzania and Zambia to address data-related challenges faced by their immunization programs. The BID Initiative developed interventions comprising electronic immunization registries, supply chain management, and data use tools. Join us in this webinar where the speakers will provide an overview of the process to develop the digital health solutions, from the design stage through to deployment of the system.

The BID Learning Network invites you to watch a webinar called: “Triangulation for Improved Decision-Making in Immunization Programs.” Successful immunization programs use data to guide efficient management, tailor strategies, and make decisions to achieve program goals. Many data sources exist within and outside the Expanded Programme on Immunization (EPI), but the use of various data sources together is not optimal in many countries. In the absence of perfect data, public health practice has long acknowledged that combining many pieces of weaker evidence can form a strong basis for making more informed decisions. As such, triangulation which is the synthesis of two or more existing data sources, is used to address relevant questions for program planning and decision-making. This webinar will introduce the concept of data triangulation in immunization programs for decision-making and present examples of data triangulation use in the field. The speakers will also discuss the development and dissemination of global guidance for data triangulation in EPI programs through various channels including the WHO Scholar distance-learning platform.

BLN Webinar: Challenges in Ascertaining Proof of Vaccination in Routine Childhood Immunization in Burkina Faso
The BID Learning Network invites you to a webinar presentation called “Challenges in Ascertaining Proof of Vaccination in Routine Childhood Immunization in Burkina Faso.” In countries taking a fast pace to introduce new vaccines, primary vaccination recording tools, such as vaccination cards or home-based records and health facility-based records, may not be systematically updated or updated in a timely manner to include data recording fields for the new antigens. During this webinar the presenter will share the key findings from a six week cross-sectional survey that was conducted in 30 health facilities across ten health districts in Burkina Faso between 2016 and 2017.

The Immunization Data: Evidence for Action (IDEA) Review is a global synthesis of existing evidence aimed at increasing the use of high-quality data to improve immunization coverage. While advances in information technology have led to continuous increases in the amount of health data available, data remains an under-utilized resource in the design and implementation of immunization programs throughout the world. The IDEA Review identifies five proven strategies to improve data use and outlines how funders, policymakers, and program implementers can incorporate these best practices to improve the efficacy of regional and national immunization programs.
