The BID Learning Network hosted a webinar where the Kati Collective, consultants engaged by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Gavi, and the World Health Organization, sought input on the framework for the Immunization Agenda 2030 (IA2030) Data Strategic Action Plan. In this webinar, the consultants shared the work they’ve undertaken to date by the IA2030 Data Strategy Working Group, including a summary of the methodology, process, and findings in the development of the strategic plan. During this session, participants had the opportunity to provide direct feedback and help influence the overall set of actionable priorities. The consultants also asked for individuals that were willing to provide more detailed input as the process continues.
