WHO Immunization Monitoring Academy (IMA) Webinar 03: Data use culture and workforce development (recording and resources)

GENEVA, 7 November 2018

Jhilmil Bahl, WHO Capacity building and training officer, was Jan Grevendonk‘s guest for this webinar.

  • What do we want health facility staff to do to improve data?
  • Why does this not always happen?
  • What can we improve and how?

These are some of the questions that kicked off our discussion about capacity-building to improve data and ultimately change the “data culture”.

IMA webinars are open to everyone. If we reach capacity (1,000 participants), you can still participate in the event on our Facebook page, where it will be broadcast on Facebook LIVE.

#Ambulance! webinar 02 (6 November 2018) recording and resources

Pre-hospital emergency care practitioners have different job roles, practices, and challenges. But the risk of violence is one thing almost everyone has in common, even in peaceful settings.

Over 150 front-line, community-based ambulance staff and volunteers from the Red Cross Red Crescent and other ambulance organizations from all over the world registered to attend in response to a call for support from colleagues Christophe Lobi Dile and Aloysius Anthony Alvarez. They presented operational experience from the Democratic Republic Congo (armed groups) and the Philippines (hostage situation). Together, they discussed three key questions:

  1. Are there joint coordination protocols with other ambulance providers and first responders?
  2. What procedures does your organisation have in place when dispatching an ambulance in insecure context?
  3. What are the mechanisms through which your organisation ensures communication with state armed and security forces? Do similar mechanims exist with respect to non-state actors?

The next #Ambulance! webinar will take place on 29 November 2018. Click here to register… (Webinar ID: 441-285-759)

In 2016 and 2017, the Geneva Learning Foundation partnered for the first time with the Norwegian Red Cross. Together, we worked with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) to convene over 3,000 community-based ambulance practitioners from 110 countries. Together, they documented, analyzed, and peer reviewed 270 front-line incidents of violence.

This fall, we are inviting you to join this global Community of Action for three webinars, during which you and other practitioners will share stories, dilemmas and insights to make access to health care and its provision safer and better protected.

The recording, presentation, highlights, and selected quotes from our first webinar are now available in the Health Care in Danger community. If you are not yet a member of the Health Care in Danger community, you will first need to create your account.
