Mérieux Foundation co-organized event
7th Meeting of the GTFCC Working Group on Oral Cholera Vaccine Webinars
November 19 - December 10, 2020 - Webinars
As the COVID-19 pandemic has precluded any real chance of hosting the usually engaging annual meetings of the Working Group on OVC in person, we have opted for a series of 3 webinars (90 minutes) that will give the working group at least a relatively brief chance to review, debate, and propose next steps for the use of OCV. This year, the Working Group on OVC will discuss on the impact of covid-19 on the OCV use, address critical issues in the implementation of the campaigns, review the supply availability and demand forecast, and provide an update on the researchprojects conducted or planned.
An overview summary of the 3 planned webinars for this topic is as follows:
Session 1 (Thursday, November 19, 2020 – 16:00-17:30 CET): Updates on campaigns conducted in 2020 & discussion on challenges of implementation (time of implementation, M&E…)
The goal is to address and recommend solutions to specific issues that will permit better quality of campaigns.
Session 2 (Thursday, December 3, 2020 – 16:00-17:30 CET): Demand forecast and supply update
The goal is to provide an update on the current production of vaccines and discuss the needs of production for the coming years.
Session 3 (Thursday, December 10, 2020 – 16:00-17:30 CET): Research update
The goal is to discuss the outcomes of the conducted research projects and discuss on the priority for research agenda for next year.
