UNICEF and WHO Global Webinar: Country case studies focusing on reinstated immunization activities during the COVID-19 pandemic
August 12, 2021 @ 9:30 am - 10:30 am
Health systems throughout the world have been rapidly overwhelmed and compromised by the COVID-19 crisis. Essential health services and routine immunization programs that are normally strengthened by supplementary immunization activities and national campaigns have been severely impacted.
As the global health community takes steps to recover lost ground, this webinar presents a case study report documenting the good practices and lessons learned from six countries that have managed to reinstate immunization campaigns despite the wide-ranging impact of the COVID-19 crisis. The report compiles experiences, achievements and challenges from Angola, Bangladesh, India, Papua New Guinea, the Philippines and Yemen.
Please join UNICEF and WHO on 12th August, 2021 at 9:30 EST (14:30 GMT), with UNICEF and WHO representatives from Yemen, India and the Philippines, who will discuss their experiences and participate in a Q&A session. The link to the webinar is: https://unicef.zoom.us/j/99165665379?from=addon The recording will be shared after the webinar for those colleagues who will be unable to join.
