Country stakeholders can learn from the experiences of three LNCT countries regarding different strategies being tested to mitigate impacts to national immunization programs during the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic.
On April 30, 2020, LNCT organized a special peer learning discussion group for countries to discuss the pandemic’s impact on immunization programs and responses across countries. Several LNCT countries – Georgia, India, and Indonesia – shared their current experiences and concerns for the immunization program, changes that have been made to immunization services, and any impact already seen on the use of immunization services. Participants were able to raise questions to the speakers throughout the discussion and LNCT also conducted three polls at different points to get more information from the participants. Gavi also joined the discussion to describe its programmatic commitments to help countries respond to the pandemic.
