Just a side-perspective from the coal-face in Ethiopia, which has introduced border screening: on Monday, hundreds of passengers at Bole airport were queuing crammed into a single room for around 3 hours, waiting to be screened. Very high risk of transmission.....

01:34:14
This is a great reading and reminder, while the COVID-19 crisis will likely impact all of us in one way or another, in the end is the most vulnerable that are at higher risk. The article emphasizes the potential - most likely - impact to refugees, but also how doubling down efforts to support them, could pay dividends during and beyond the crisis.

Pippa Biggs, ITU

@Garrett Many thanks for a great presentation. Is WHO working on (m)any predictive models by yourself, or do you rely on partnerships with universities for that? Many thanks, Pippa (ITU)
OJohn

There is a lot of discussion around using telehealth solutions to decrease the load on the healthsystems
OJohn

What is the groups view on this ?
Ousmane Ly
01:41:16
it's possible to have copy of presentations?
Wayan Vota

@Ousmane we will have slides as we can get them

@oJohn, we are not talking about specific solutions at this time. We are focusing on context
Calle Hedberg

Telemedicine? In general for LMICs, forget it - it's been hyped for 25 years, and still play no significant role for any real health service delivery

@Pippa - I understand that colleagues in WHO with external partners are working on predictive models

Question: The pandemic will widely affect our community’s ability to complete deliverables and implement on schedule and on budget. Does USAID have any early guidance to address that issue?

@Merrick Is there a standard to rally around for sharing data? Even for the basics, there’s no apparent standard on how to share data on case numbers

How important is it spend time understanding local authoritative IT governance bodies and standards before attempting to influence events or deploy solutions?
Jaclyn Carlsen
01:57:15
Thank you Adele and Merrick. 2 points to underscore: 1) Importance of starting local conversations with ministries, tech vendors, private sector asap, not tomorrow. Discuss data sharing protocols, info system assets and risks, protocols for deploying new tech. Start up those coordination calls w/local actors. 2) Most successful initiatives were embedded in local context with meaningful participation, if not leadership, from local actors.

Africa CDC and HISP-SA have started a process to develop data exchange standards for Africa - to be presented to member states for approval before end of 2020

There are also others here on the call who were on the ground for a long time during and after the response. Would be interested to hear reflections from them.

@jaclyn and @carl great points

+1 to Jaclyn and Carl's comments. A growing number of governments have digital health working groups that could and should be engaged to help coordinate related investments and activities at the country level.
stevenwanyee
02:01:41
A key aspect is coordination… can someone share experiences and frameworks that worked in effectively ensuring effective coordination and collaboration within an epidemic situation to rapidly develop and deploy solutions (in digital health)?

Is it trust we want to build, or behaviors that we want to influence, in relation to both treatment related interventions and prevention practices.

With the knowledge we now have about digital health investments from DHA and Wayan’s list, has someone analysed gaps relative to what’s required to a coordinated COVID digital health enterprise?

@Theresa Terrific. How will WHO and the SDOs be releasing these publicly for others to make use of?

Breese McIlvaine, DIAL
02:05:39
Hi all - re MESSAGING tools - DIAL has developed an online catalogue of mobile network service integrators, aggregators, that provide mobile service delivery around the world. This resource (https://registry.dial.community/organizations) can help you understand which mobile channels are available in a specific geography to reach populations regardless of cell service they use. Please contact Tanvir Singh Natt, based in Nairobi, Kenya at tsinghnatt@digitalimpactalliance.org for more information.

Shayan Chowdhury

The presentation on Safiri was very insightful! Just one question, how often is the surveillance conducted? Is it possible to do this in realtime?
ptaylor
03:16:00
Related to treatment group and policymaker challenges that we couldn't get to in the group...For policymakers, anytime there is triage and prioritization of treatment, countries have to anticipate that there will be fear, anger and backlash, and that this will make it difficult for managers and providers to adhere to policies that are in place to benefit all. Digital solutions that help policymakers/politicians manage a population's fear are going to be needed. There must be examples from previous disease control efforts that we could learn from and help countries adapt and use, no?
Violet Njuguna
03:19:05
@shayan We rely on MOH(DHIS-2), WHO and CDC data. Exploring how to do this realtime
Carl Leitner
03:20:43
note that SORMAS is an in-place system in Ghana and Nigeria which already has a Covid-19 module deployed for contact tracing and case reporting.
Andrew Kashoka
03:21:47
DHIS is only effective if utilization of data is inculcated in healthcare providers and timely reporting is defined in the governance structures. Zambia has a Health data warehouse connecting multiple data sources (systems) which report on different dates dependent on business case. This is being linked to the health situation room and DHIS
Carl Kinkade
03:22:23
To support COVID, I think it is key to leverage existing investments and processes and then leverage these efforts to advance country national electronic case-based surveillance with lab integration that can roll up to regional surveillance reporting. This will be the focus of some of our activities at CDC to support the response and GHSA.
Shayan Chowdhury
03:22:49
@Violet, thank you! That sounds very interesting and has huge implications for proactivity, looking forward to seeing how that progresses

collaboration between compass and DHIS-2 to leverage existing implementations would be good
Shayan Chowdhury
03:31:08
I also agree with that, Wayan. On that note, I think it's important to aggregate a public list of similar projects and processes to drive for collaboration between them, since a lot of projects tend to not know/have access to the resources that already exist and tend to start from scratch and under different foundations that aren't always adaptable

One aspect I have not heard a single person mentioning: In some historic pandemics, "civil unrest" (read; blame minorities, foreigners, political/religiious opponents) ended up killing as many people as the pandemic itself.... Stigmatisation, xenophobic attacks, right-wing policies - we are already seeing this in many countries
Andrew Kashoka
03:41:09
The people using the tools is the key to success and this is a true position in the health sector in Zambia
Merrick Schaefer
03:41:23
good point Calle, rumor control and clear and transparent communication is key
Edna /SPIDER
03:41:58
@Calle we did mention this in the discussion on prevention and images used in information spreading this
Jonathan Jackson
03:42:17
absolutely its about the local teams on the ground that can leverage the platform. I think that's why many of us are reinforcing to use what's already there, because that will leverage the human capital the best
Calle Hedberg
03:43:11
Not only that - a clear political strategy for uniting people against the pandemic is equally or more important. Which in most cases means tackling xenophobia and religious hatred head on
Sue Duvall
03:43:29
+1 on this article that Jonathan and Steve shared about how Taiwan and Singapore managed to contain COVID-19. Taiwan is a positive deviant here. Good for countries still at the early stages. Reminder that non-digital interventions are needed as well as digital.
