Test & Learn: Promising Practices in Collaborative Planning for Integrated Campaigns
March 22 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am EDT
On Tuesday, March 22 at 8AM EDT, the Health Campaign Effectiveness Coalition will share a synthesis of 65 promising practices in collaborative planning. The practices were generated by eight local institutions in six different countries who examined past, planned, and potential integrated campaigns. The promising practices are actions that planners, managers, and implementers of immunization, polio, malaria, vitamin A supplementation, and NTD campaigns can consider for improving the planning process and increasing campaign effectiveness.
You are invited to participate and contribute to our collective understanding of the factors that enable and hinder collaborative campaign planning across the campaign integration spectrum – from collaboration in certain campaign components to co-delivery and varied interactions with primary healthcare systems. The second hour of the session will provide a space for participants to engage in deep discussion. Together, we can identify opportunities and entry points for applying the practices, and continue to build the Coalition knowledge base. Interpretation in French and/or Spanish will be available if there is sufficient interest, please indicate in the form below.
