Project Description
IDB: The main objective of this TC is to make available to the public, essential information and the necessary evidence to make the right decisions on vaccination, as well as methodologies, tools and practical examples of best practices on immunization. In addition, operations financed by the Initiative promote, in agreement with the Donors Committee, a strong learning and policy dialogue component. During the implementation of these operations, a large gap has been identified in access to knowledge and updating in health areas. To respond to this, the IDB, together with the ICSS and the University of Miami, joined forces and since 2015 have made available to health personnel who serve 20% of the population with lower incomes 2 graduates in the areas of maternal health And children (AMANECE) and vaccines (DILAVAC). These graduates, with the participation of recognized national and international experts and offered through an online platform called PIEENSO, have benefited 2,000 health professionals, thanks to the scholarships granted by the ICSS whose cost is Estimated at about US$1,500 each. This has enabled health professionals working in the areas of greater deferral have been able to strengthen the development of skills and capacities in maternal and child health issues, as well as immunizations. The purpose of this technical cooperation is to convert these graduates into a mass online course open to all the public that provides essential information and evidence necessary for the correct decision on vaccination so that the benefits of immunization are distributed equitably and arrive To all people in the countries of the Region.
