In the foreseeable future, profitable nationwide COVID-19 vaccination efforts might outline the restoration path for the creating international locations. The proposed session will likely be dedicated to unpacking how knowledge and progressive applied sciences have been used for designing, creating and implementing the COVID vaccination strategy on the nation stage and the way they might be improved. The session will put up a comparative perspective based mostly on the experiences of a low-income nation (Rwanda), a low-middle earnings nation (Bangladesh), a high-middle earnings nation (Argentina) and a high-income nation (USA). These 4 international locations have various experiences in enterprise vaccination programmes (private and non-private) in response to the pandemic the place progressive knowledge uptake for decision-making performs a essential position. The most important goal of the proposed session is twofold: 1) determine finest practices of use of progressive knowledge and know-how in framing COVID-19 vaccination strategy by way of evaluation of nationwide expertise, and a pair of) discover methods and means for strengthening nationwide data-driven vaccination methods and alternatives for replication in different international locations. The session goals to carry collectively knowledge demanders, knowledge producers, knowledge managers and assessors, and knowledge customers and facilitate their energetic and candid engagement on a shared platform for mutual studying. The session has been designed with the intent of maximising viewers participation and interplay. As such, the session kicks off with a lightning speak by the audio system. Subsequently, the session evolves to adapt a debate-style format by which the viewers and audio system will have interaction in a free-flowing dialogue round 4 points: 1) figuring out progressive knowledge initiatives, 2) interfacing and interoperability of various knowledge sources, 3) reinforcing data-driven decision-making at a coverage stage and, 4) designing safeguards for knowledge privateness, particularly within the pandemic context. The session will incorporate real-time on-line polls to collect viewers opinions. The moderator will summarise the dialogue and put ahead an actionable coverage mannequin for perusal. A weblog will later be posted to broadly share the result of the session. The session will likely be carried out in a hybrid method. It may even be live-streamed within the organiser’s Facebook web page (offered UNWDF settlement). This session is organised by CPD in affiliation with Southern Voice, a2i, CIPPEC, Patrick J. McGovern Foundation and ‘THE CITY’.
