DHIS2 experts presented the new Adverse Events Following Immunization (AEFI) metadata package for DHIS2 at a live webinar on **Wednesday, 9 December, from 13:00-14:00 Oslo time (UTC+1).
The AEFI metadata package is modeled on the WHO reporting and investigation form for Adverse Events Following Immunization, and allows the user to capture case-based data using the WHO recommended 25 core variables, facilitate the investigation of adverse events, and generate reliable data for decision making. The AEFI tracker aims to support a sustainable approach to vaccine safety surveillance, including potential application to COVID-19 vaccine delivery.
This webinar will cover:
- Overview of the scope & use case for Adverse Events Following Immunizations (AEFI) tracker. Including relevance of the upcoming COVID vaccine
- Demo of workflow & functionality of the AEFI tracker
- Materials and resources
- Discussion on implementation approaches.
We will use this thread for questions and answers during and after the webinar. If you have questions for the DHIS2 team, please add them here.
