Scaling real-time monitoring approaches and digital solutions for Covid-19 vaccination and response in Rwanda
February 15 @ 7:00 am - 8:00 am EST
Learn about Rwanda’s experience scaling real-time monitoring (RTM) approaches employing digital, ICT solutions to support Covid-19 vaccination, real-time Covid-19 surveillance and case management.
This Gavi Talks session is co-organized by the Government of Rwanda, Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, UNICEF, the World Health Organization and HISP Rwanda. Another session in French will be organized in the coming weeks.
The event will include speakers from:
- the Ministry of Health of Rwanda,
- UNICEF HQ,
- UNICEF Rwanda,
- WHO Rwanda, and
- HISP Rwanda
With the implementation of the COVID-19 vaccine roll out, the MoH of Rwanda required a digital platform to register and monitor individual vaccinations, track the progress of the immunization program and respond in real-time to areas of low coverage. In response, District Health Information Software 2 (DHIS2) was adapted to include an Electronic Immunization Registry module. Presentations by the Ministry of Health will also address Rwanda experience with Covid-19 case management and surveillance with a focus on how real-time data and information is being used to inform decision-making, corrective action, and lessons learned.
The webinar will also introduce the launch of new UNICEF-Gavi Guidance on Planning and Implementing Real Time Monitoring Approaches for Immunization Campaigns Gavi has supported UNICEF to compile good practices and lessons learned from countries implementing Real Time Monitoring for immunization campaigns.
The new guidance on “Planning and Implementing Real Time Monitoring Approaches for Immunization Campaigns Gavi” will be posted HERE along “The Use of Digital Technologies for Real-Time Monitoring of Supplementary Immunization Activities; Good Practices and Lessons Learned”.
