PATH Advocacy and Public Policy Virtual Learning Series: Advocating at the Subnational Level During COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic is transforming the world around us—shifting priorities, repurposing resources, changing accountability practices, and accelerating policy development. In the absence of face-to-face interaction, the pandemic is also changing the way health advocates approach policymakers—increasingly through virtual means. Virtual engagements are often more difficult at the subnational level, excluding critical community and civil society voices in decision-making. Join PATH’s Advocacy and Public Policy team for a discussion series to catalyze conversations and exchange best practices among health advocates and policymakers across the African continent.

BLN Webinar: Triangulation for Improved Decision-Making in Immunization Programs

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.
